Ways to Fight without Fighting

All conflicts must be resolved no matter who is involved, how grave the reason is, what is at stake, and where it is happening. But people do not need to physically fight each other to win the argument. Even if you have the strength or the machinery, you should not rely on any of them to impose our will over someone.

Initiate the communication

In an argument, most of the time, two sides arise- one coming from you and the other one from your opponent. The best way to start fixing the conflict is by opening the line of communication. You cannot expect a conflict to resolve on its own.

You should be ready to sit down with your opponent and start conversing with him. If you have to build a website for your adversary to talk to you, then go and build it. If you must provide him coupon codes on products, you should give it to him. Be the one that initiates the communication between the two of you.

Be rational in sharing your side

When approaching this conversation, you must keep a rational mind and remove any thoughts that can ruin the smooth flow of the communication. You should avoid provoking words. Saying these statements will automatically shut down any line of communication between the two of you.

If you are not good with words, then it will be better to make a list of the pros and cons of your side. In this way, you are showing that you carefully studied the situation.

Listen to what your opponent has to say

You have to understand that hearing is different from listening. When you hear someone, you only receive the words but do not care about the actual words that he is saying to you. Listening is different. It is opening your heart and absorbing every statement that he is raising.

Compromise

After listening to each other’s sides, you must arrive at a compromise. This is the only way to solve conflicts. Give some leeway on your side and expect the other side to do the same.
