Not dealing with conflict, creates conflict.
(A modified version of a quote Zandra came up with).
It has been a crazy week here and we’ve had some emergencies to deal with – primarily involving the health of Rob’s parents. Hopefully they are on the upswing now, but I couldn’t let my quote of the week slip by nevertheless!
This quote stems from our all around family experiences in the past little while. Sometimes we think staying quiet, avoiding saying something, or pretending (ostrich head in the sand) is the way to go. But, that is not always the case. In fact, for us, it seems to make things worse.
Being honest, up front, having good intentions and working things through is always the way to go. And, it usually brings you closer than ever.
