Conflict resolution

To work through conflict/
we must open up our hearts/
To other folks pain/

By opening our hearts during the midst of conflict we open an opportunity for all involved to grow. We have been taught to shut down, but doing that can be counter productive. By shutting down we limit how we can respond and miss a beautiful opportunity to promote growth to others.
By studying martial arts as well as sports I have been in many conflicts, and i have done my best work when I was open to the conflict that these activities provided me. Only by open myself up during these conflicts was I able to excel. The same goes in life.
