A famous family therapist, Carl Whitaker, a well know family therapist said, “Conflict is the pathway to intimacy.” How could a conflict lead to intimacy?
We need to understand like Whitaker understood that conflict in relationship is unavoidable and bound take place. So rather than fight it, you should embrace it (because it won’t help). Also, even though conflict is not enjoyable and easy, when couple engaged with healthy communication and have conflict resolutions skills, they know that conflict is not something that needs to be avoided.
Last but not least, managing conflict successfully adds other deeper dimensions to the relationship such as greater trust, resiliency, intimacy, bonding and happiness. Remember, where there is conflict, a dialogue can be established. Where there is dialogue, there can be healing and prosperity.
