the true art
The true art of being conflict is not to convince the other of your point of view, but to put your own “world” aside and try to enter the world of the other, until you can understand and respect his thoughts and emotions. Only then we will reach a base for new ways of interacting and solutions. And don´t worry: We can always return to our own world anyway.
