Do you have unrealistic expectations ….. or realistic expectations when it comes to Conflict Resolution?

As we begin this series on what is Healthy Resolution, our Expectations about conflict come high on the list. We all have expectations whether we realise it or not. Nowhere are these expectations more serious and complex than in the relationship with others.

Expectations can be a major source of stress in a work environment, in social and relationship issues. Emotional distress, conflicts, communication breakdowns, misunderstandings, distrust all develop from faulty expectations.

Many times, these expectations can be untrue or even unrealistic.
