Everyone experiences conflict in relationships at some point. Whether it’s with friends, family members, co-workers or romantic partners, the trick to maintaining positive relationships is understanding how to resolve disagreements in a constructive way. Sometimes that’s easier said than done, especially when emotion, defenses, or pride get in the way.
