Every fight is an opportunity to build trust


A buddy of mine in college would say this every time he made a new friend,


๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต.


And whenever he said that I would look at him like he was crazy.


One day, I asked him to explain this crazy theory.

He said, ๐˜•๐˜ช๐˜ฌ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ญ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ต. ๐˜Œ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ธ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฑ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฑ.๐˜ž๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ'๐˜ต ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ญ & ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ'๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ. ๐˜‰๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ต ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต, ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ.

And that always stuck with me.


โš”๏ธ Most of us avoid uncomfortable conversations like the plague.


Any tension in the workplace just stresses us out.


And if we get "feedback", we feel attacked & exhausted afterward.


๐Ÿง But what if we reframed it in a different light?


๐Ÿ™Œ What if we saw conflicts as our most authentic selves really meeting each other?


Then we wouldn't dread having a talk with a coworker who keeps letting us down.


We'd see it as a chance to understand what they're going through & to assert ourselves in a real way.


No matter how messy or volatile it gets, as long we're respectful


We're always going to come out of it a little bit wiser


A little more honest & true to ourselves.


๐Ÿ‘Š And believe it or not, a bit more closer with each other as well.
