The Big Idea For Conflict Resolution
There are many myths as to what strength and bravery are:  It is not a sign of strength to: 1) not apologize 2) project that you are perfect 3) not let people have their experiences exist equally 4) constantly seek comfort simply to avoid your discomfort.  No one makes mistakes on purpose.  Each person I has two dogs in them that they feed.  One is the attack dog and one is the connect dog….which ever dog we feed has a lot to do with our mindset.  My mindset says what dog will I feed and that has to do with character.
” We’re not capable of making our circumstances ready enough so that we can join in without the risk of getting scraped.” ~Johansson & Lankow
