Ten New Year’s Conflict Resolutions

Instead of a series of 10 questions, this week’s blog is a series of my Conflict Resolutions for 2014.

  1. This year, I will acknowledge how conflict presents an opportunity to enrich relationships.
  2. This year, I will make amends with people and not let our differences of opinion fester.
  3. This year, I will apologize and mean it.
  4. This year, I will stop blaming others.
  5. This year, I will take responsibility for how I contributed to disputes.
  6. This year, I will forgive and let bygones be bygones.
  7. This year, I will not be hard on others, or on myself.
  8. This year, I will not judge people.
  9. This year, I will value the importance of respecting other people’s opinions, even if I don’t agree with them.
  10. This year, I will listen.

Please feel free to add your own.

Wishing you a joyful, peaceful, and loving 2014!
