Our Responses to Conflict

The Slippery Slope (This is taken from Ken Sande's book the Peacemaker and can be found at www.Peacemakers.net It is an excellent book which I highly recommend).

Conflict can make life very awkward. It often catches us off guard and leads us to say or do things we later regret. When someone offends us, we can react without thinking. Soon it’s as if we’re sliding down a slippery slope, with things going from bad to worse. As the illustration below shows, this slippery slope can drop off in two directions.
