CINERGY (tm) - Peacebuilding... one person at a time


While I take some holiday time this month I don’t want to lose my connection with you. So, for the next 5 Tuesdays of August I am posting the 5 most popular blogs in 2015. If you are inclined, please provide your comments on why you think this one was so well-received. This is the first most popular:


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?
