#MicroblogMondays – Avoiding Confrontation?

I find it difficult to deal with confrontations. I am okay if I have a very good relation with the person. But if not I find it really hard. What’s even more difficult is if I just leave the matter without confrontation. Now that’s against my principle. So either way I will be an emotional wreck.

But then sometimes we need to put our doubts behind and just go for it, right? And when I do that, however difficult it was to speak up my mind, it feels great afterwards.

Have you been in such situations? What would be your approach?

  1. It is the same with me….never easy. I would consider the age and closeness while getting ready for confrontation like I might confront my brother or my husband but never with my in-laws or my parents. With friends I let it go unless it becomes a habit with a particular friend. With people I know remotely know for eg the ladies who come to pick up their children when they come back from school or with husband’s colleagues’ wives, I choose to move away from such people. Being a quiet person with less words to say also helps.

  2. I have come across such situations. I feel it better to confront than to keep it in mind. Be it my boss, friend, colleague, I hv spoken my mind and it feels better to confront them straight away!

  3. I identify with this so much, I shy away from confrontation and that eats me up. Confrontation is hard but necessary sometimes and I guess the best way is just to face it.

    1. That’s another way of living and very helpful, if the situation won’t get under your skin. 🙂

  4. OMG! Just got off a confrontational call 🙂
    If something’s bothering me, I cannot keep it to myself. The confrontation by itself is very taxing and raises my BP but I cannot rest without speaking up. I wish I could 🙁

  5. Confrontation create a fight or flight response, and it is difficult to know which one will rise to the surface. I believe my proclivity is is choose flight if possible, but if “cornered,” whether in a committee meeting or meeting someone for coffee, I will immediately escalate, and escalate the confrontation along with dropping my civil filters. How much this to do with my bipolar / anxiety disorders I don’t know, but I have had to work and struggle with dealing with confrontations, and just as important jumping to the conclusion there is a confrontation regardless of whether there is actually one.
