Metaphors and Conflict

Many metaphors are used to describe interpersonal conflict and our reactions. Some relate to war (shooting someone down), animals (the elephant in the room), and even food (peeling back an onion). These and others provide idiomatic expressions that are useful for redefining our conflicts, the other person, and ourselves within the dynamic.

What metaphor describes a conflict you are engaged in or your experience within it?
