Fear of Conflict

One reason we avoid conflict is due to fears we are experiencing. Examples are the fear of losing things we value such as face, control,  the relationship, self-respect, our reputation, hard won success, and something else important to us. We may have other fears, too, that impede our ability to effectively engage in conflict. Often there is no grounding in reality for our fears and even when the fear is real we might blow it out of proportion.

Which of your fears about a conflict are grounded in reality?
