Module 4: Conflict
Why is conflict important?
Conflict is inevitable in relationships, and without it relationships stagnate. No one is happy all the time and avoiding discussing negativity when it arises creates problems. Successful couples know that the goal of conflict is to gain understanding. You are bound to have uncomfortable feelings in life and being able to discuss these with your partner in constructive, self-disclosing ways will positively impact your relationship. This creates a foundation of trust. And, if you and your partner are willing to hear, understand and ultimately empathize with each other, you will put yourself on the path to a longer, more fulfilling relationship.
