Ara Agbala Scissors

Conflict is an inherent part of human existence, and there are different ways to handle them without losing the good people in your life. As people with different personalities, disagreements are bound to occur. But does every disagreement signify the end of a relationship?

These days the only solution many people, especially Gen Zs, prescribe for resolving conflict is, "Cut them all off!" You be scissors?😄 Haba! Let's be calming down, please. One thing many forget is that every one of us has flaws. No one is above flaws. Even "the most perfect of us" still has some imperfections. And guess what? It's okay! But many of us fail to understand. The first thing that comes to mind at the slightest provocation is, " I've got to put a stop to this relationship."

If you continue doing this, you'll probably discover one day that you've chased everyone away from you because you have refused to be patient with others. If you have flaws, what makes you feel it's taboo for others to be the same? You may have a friend, and maybe the bad trait the person has is tardiness - a lack of respect for time.

Are you going to ignore the other good parts of the person because you're a very punctual person who detests tardiness? Or maybe you have a friend who uses lots of expletives or speaks in an uncouth manner, whereas you are a very reserved and well-spoken person. Will you decide to cut them off because of this difference in personalities? There may be other instances that I didn't mention, but the point I'm trying to make is we should learn to make allowances for others. We should learn patience. So many things can be solved by just having a simple conversation. Talking to the person and letting them know how their actions make you feel may be much more effective than you think.

However, allowances do not apply in cases of abuse or constant neglect or cases where the individual refuses to change despite your efforts to arrive at a middle ground and so on. Making allowances does not mean letting other people take advantage of you; it is simply understanding that imperfections are a part of human nature.
