1. Attacking others and defending oneself both contribute to harm and the continuation of conflict.
1. Gossiping: Spreading rumors and talking negatively creates divisions between yourself and others.
2. Verbal insults: Using hurtful words and name-calling damages your relationships.
3. Physical violence: Engaging in physical aggression leads to physical harm, pain, and the escalation of violence.
1. Blaming others: Constantly blaming others without taking personal responsibility for your actions creates hostility and prevents you from resolving conflicts peacefully.
2. Ignoring or avoiding: Shutting down communication and avoiding issues leads to unresolved tensions and it builds up resentment over time.
3. Building walls: Putting up emotional barriers and not trusting others hinders genuine connections and perpetuate a cycle of isolation.

Seek alternative approaches to conflict resolution, such as practicing forgiveness, empathy, and open communication.
