Avoiding conflict makes us more rigid, limits our access to honest, intimate relationships, and causes many to choose the safety of ideology over the awkwardness of deeper human connections
Thank you, Polly. I needed this reminder. Perfect timing.
You have articulated things I’ve been feeling, but didn’t have the words for. Thank you. Sometimes things are really hard even in good relationships, and more and more we are being encouraged to leave as soon as things get hard. I really don’t think this is healthy.
