Derailing a Conflict

It may seem a good thing to take a conflict off the rails that it is moving along. However, derailing it may make it worse. We may lose control of the journey it is meant to be on and take its essence to a place it doesn’t belong. Whereas letting a conflict travel the rail it started on might help us better understand the route and buy the ticket that safely gets us to a destination we both want.

What about this metaphor resonates for you and a conflict you are in?
