Conflict Resolution

Take Care of It

“Have the conversation. Resolve it. Move forward.” – J.B. Bickerstaff

Jiminy Crickets

“Never act until you have clearly answered the questions: “What happens if I do nothing?” – Robert Brault

Create, Don’t Compete

“You were placed on this earth to create, not to compete.” – Robert Anthony

Tough Love

“Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Unparalleled Freedom

“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad pretty little unsexy ways, every day.” – David Foster Wallace

The Offensive Defense

“Much of the time, the things we feel guilty about are not our issues. Another person behaves inappropriately or in some way violates our boundaries. We challenge the behavior, and the person gets angry and defensive. Then we feel guilty.” – Melody Beattie

Respect the Root

“Respect is at the root of love. Be still. Know that you don’t have to coax anyone to hold you in high regard. When love is intentional + authentic, there will be no anxiety about reciprocity. Connections meant for you won’t be second-guessed or filled with uncertainty. Free yourself from relationships that leave you feeling insignificant.” – Alex Elle

Resist the Urge

“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” – Dorothy Nevill

Holding Out for a Hero

“The simple act of caring is heroic.” – Edward Albert

Pull Together

“One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn’t as individuals.” – Jean Vanier
