I hate conflicts. I hate conflicts between other people and myself, between friends, between parents, etc. I feel extremely stressed out if I'm put in a situation where there's conflict, especially if it involves me. I'm alright with handling conflicts over the internet, since it gives me time to formulate my thoughts into "civil" conversation, but in real life, I lose my cool really quickly if the other person is being unreasonable or says something that just pisses me off. Then, I start cussing and doing irrational things, because the situation forces me to respond immediately, therefore I'm just responding with passionate emotions instead of logic....and things don't end well. I also want to cause physical harm, although this usually doesn't happen, and I just self destruct instead. However, if the other person strikes first........I can't guranttee I won't retaliate. I'm not exactly proud of this quality. I know I should work on not using profanity, and remaining calm, but it's completely different when it's theory vs. actual real time experience. How do you handle conflicts?
