Can we get rid of the phrase “We had a fight?” when we’re talking about relationship disagreements and conflicts?
Fight indicates severity and violence. Words like survival and self-defense come up when we’re talking fight. Black eyes and wounds result.
Seriously, nobody wants it.🙅🏽♀️
Disagreement or conflict changes the view. Then words like negotiate, win-win, or resolution rise up. Handshakes and hugs come about.
I mean who doesn’t want a win-win? 🙋🏽♀️
Next time you’re about to describe a fight, pause. Use a different lens. Name it a disagreement or a conflict.
New tools become available to you, to work through the difficulty toward a resolution where everyone comes out together and stronger. 🤝 💪🏽
