Relationships can be one of the greatest sources of joy and fulfillment in life. When we experience relationship problems, we feel great pain, disappointment, fear and loneliness. Conflict isinevitable in relationships with people we love. I believe how we view the conflict makes a big difference in our ability to work through relationship problems. I take a positive view of relationships, includingthe difficult parts.
