Conflict, on the other hand, may be destructive to everyone involved if it is not productive or healthy. Sustained, unresolved disagreement can cause strain at home or at work, degrade relationship strength and happiness, and even make individuals physically unwell or in pain. Conflict is therefore significant because it can have negative effects on relationships and on groups.
Conflict is dangerous because it can lead to violence. When two people disagree about something and one person refuses to change their mind, this often leads to violence. People might use physical force against each other, throw things, call others names, etc. This is called "fighting" and when people do it they are "fighting". Fighting is dangerous because it can cause serious injury or death. If you fight with someone and they hit you back, you could be sued by them for assault.
Fighting is dangerous too because it can lead to violence against others. Someone who has been fighting regularly may start using weapons such as knives or guns. These people are called "violent offenders" because they tend to commit acts of violence against others to resolve their disputes. Violent offenders need help because there are treatments available that can prevent or reduce violence in people who have problems controlling their anger.
Conflict is also dangerous because it can lead to withdrawal from society. Some people will choose to avoid conflict at all costs, which can have negative effects on your relationships and your career.
When conflict is settled efficiently, several advantages accrue, including the achievement of goals and the strengthening of relationships. However, confrontation may be harmful. When managed ineffectively, dispute can swiftly escalate into personal hatred and even lead to relationship dissolution. Thus, effective management of conflict is essential to maintaining healthy relationships.
Resolving conflict involves discussing differences of opinion or ideas with another person in a friendly manner. It does not mean that one party has to give in to the other's wishes; rather, both parties should come to an agreement about how to move forward.
Conflict will always exist between people because they have different views on some issue. In order for them to reach a satisfactory conclusion, they need to discuss their differences openly and find a way through them.
If one party is unwilling to negotiate or change their position, resolution becomes impossible. They might feel that changing their view would undermine their dignity or make them look weak, which could cause them to fight harder to avoid it.
In addition, if one party acts like they are completely satisfied with the outcome regardless of what the other person thinks, resolution fails. They might feel that forcing their will upon others ensures that they get what they want, even if it isn't what the other person wanted.
Conflict may persist if people are unable to settle it, destroying relationships and creating an uncomfortable work atmosphere. Even if the disagreement is only between two people, it makes others uncomfortable and contributes to a hostile work atmosphere. Conflict also can have negative effects on individuals' physical health because of stress related to the conflict.
Conflict can ruin the lives of others if it ends up in court. The parties involved may suffer financial loss due to legal fees even if they do not win their cases. If there is no settlement, the conflict may end up before a judge or jury who will decide how much money should be paid to resolve the matter. If you are part of a dispute resolution process such as arbitration or mediation, you should try to resolve the conflict before it reaches this stage.
In addition to being expensive and having potentially serious consequences for your reputation, conflict is harmful because it prevents people from living their lives in peace. Whether they are victims or perpetrators of the conflict, both parties suffer when it continues to exist.
Conflict can ruin the lives of others if it causes someone to commit suicide. Suicidal people often say that they want to escape from their problems and conflicts with other people, so conflict seems like the last thing they would want. However, unresolved conflict hurts everyone involved, including those who appear not to be involved in the conflict directly.
It's important to remember that confrontation isn't always terrible. Conflict may be beneficial. It raises awareness of existing problems and creates motivation to discover a better path forward. When conflict is appreciated, it fosters an environment in which change is viewed positively—as a means of making things better. Without conflict, there is no progress. Without progress, there is no innovation. And without innovation, we would be incapable of dealing with many modern issues.
Conflict is also necessary for survival. Social animals need ways to resolve disputes before they become conflicts or else they will end up killed off. Otherwise, they will be eaten by other animals or swept away by floods or tornadoes. Group conflict allows for the emergence of leaders who are capable of resolving disputes before they become fights. It also provides an opportunity for everyone in the group to feel like they have something to lose if they fight because losses lead to more cooperation next time around.
Finally, conflict is fun! Fighting back against someone who is trying to hurt you or steal your stuff is exciting! Being able to defend yourself or attack back when someone attacks you is rewarding! Why would anyone want to live their life without any of this excitement and pleasure?
Group conflict is great because it teaches us how to deal with problems and disagreements with others, it ensures our survival by allowing us to escape from dangerous situations, and it makes life fun!
