We all know the story of the Empires new clothes, right? Were he paraded down his village with no clothes on and no one wanted to confront him and tell him that he was stark naked. It took the innocence of a young boy to yell this out, that broke the trance. How do you handle confrontation? For most people this can be very difficult. If there is a problem that needs to be addressed, avoiding it will only make the matter worse. So what is the best way to handle it? Having a clear sense of how to do this will create a win-win situation or a win-loss outcome. Confrontation is not about I’m right and you’re wrong. It is about being direct, clear, honest and sincere. When you align your tone of voice, words and intention to communication what you feel in a healthy way, the message gets received in a non-aggressive manner.

 


It is important to confront the behavior or an action that is unfavorable. If not, nothing changes and it will get worse. Healthy confrontation takes emotional stability and responsibility. In order for our world to change in a positive direction we need people to speak up and confront the issues that are allowing so much destructive behavior to go on.

Confrontation

confrontationIn the confrontation between the rock and the stream, the stream always wins, not through strength, but through persistence.

The Buddha

Are you afraid of confrontation? Many people are. I was, until I became aware of the damage I caused myself and others. You see, confrontation is healthy and necessary for your own spiritual progress. It is not always easy to confront someone without it turning into a battle of egos. That’s not what confrontation is all about. It is about speaking your truth and allowing others to hear it. If you feel like someone is taking advantage of you, speak up! You see, we teach others how to treat us. We need to express our feelings in a healthy way, and there is no other way Avoidance is not resolution! I feel so much better and healthier, now that I confront a situation that does not resonate with my highest good. What you resist will persist, so confront the situation with confidence, truth and persistence.
