It is strange to imagine what we look like when we are in conflict. We don’t get to be a spectator and observe ourselves, though on reflection we may be able to describe our demeanour, the look on our face, or how we acted at these times. Thinking about all this inspired some questions for this week’s blog. I began thinking that an interesting way of examining how we engage in conflict is to consider if we are able to ‘see’ ourselves through someone else’s eyes. This is not only how we look but also, how we act.
The line of inquiry today works well if you think back on a recent dispute and recall the exchange between you and another person. After getting that interchange into your consciousness, I suggest you envision that a close and caring friend, family member, colleague or other special person observed you in that interaction.
