Sidestepping conflict

“and she was famously blunt and outspoken.”

Katharine Hepburn by Richard Avedon, 1955.

“That’s the downside of trying to sidestep conflict. Smoothing over problems will only make them come back with greater fierceness, until you invariably explode.”

dievca’s the type to rip the band-aid off.  Get the pain over with immediately, so it doesn’t linger.

she’s surrounded by people who are amazed at her bluntness and tend to avoid conflict. OK, let’s be honest, most people avoid conflict. Got it.

Look, dievca doesn’t thrive on being blunt, she was just raised in a blunt household and has watched things fester when you don’t face them…it’s not pretty.

she doesn’t want things festering in her Soul.

Address the issue and move on.

    Wise approach. Parts of me were rude and brash and squelched to meet norms. Imagine, still a fiery young child, with dievca in my corner when I was stubbornly growing my spine. – Ret

  3. I think tact is a very under-rated virtue. That said, there are times when stuff must be said. 🙂
