Our own perspectives – how we see the world – seem natural, normal and RIGHT, especially when we are under stress. When in conflict we tend to do MORE of what ISN’T working.
How many times, in conflict resolution, have you said the same thing over and over and over and yet the person still didn’t get it?
How many times do we bang our heads against the door trying to get people to see things our way, when we’re stubbornly resistant to seeing things others’ way?
You can try pushing but maybe try pulling from time to time.
