5. Walk Away From the Conflict
There is a well-known idiom that comes from the military, and it asks a question "Is this the hill you want to die on?". Our culture has a warring, competitive mindset that fights over even trivial matters, introducing conflict on insignificant points, and ultimately causing unnecessary stress and hurt.
Conflict will happen, but does it need to happen so often? Put another way, it is important to practice walking-away from trivial conflict - the kinds of conflict that don't grow into pent-up bitterness, prejudice, or anger.
(This could be a good message for those who tend to FIGHT when seeing a conflict).
