It was the beginning of the Thanksgiving weekend and although Kara was going through the motions of preparing a traditional turkey dinner, her heart wasn’t in it. It felt like there was nothing to celebrate.
I’m convinced that unresolved conflict is a major cause of poor mental health and that confrontation that leads to healing can be the best elixir to a troubled soul. Yet even the word “confrontation” brings a sense of adversity, does it not?
The truth is that conflict doesn’t have to be adversarial! Addressing offences can be loving and gentle. Healing confrontation is the portal where vulnerability and greater understanding merge to create unity and growth.
