7 Instant Benefits of Confrontation
Whenever a conflict arises for you and you don’t confront someone, you have to keep it hidden; particularly if the subject of the conflict involves someone you see on a regular basis. And keeping things hidden from someone requires deceit, which brings an unclear conscience. Whether you keep quiet about the issue or lie when asked if there’s a problem, it can weigh on your conscience.
There’s something about voicing your thoughts and feelings to another person that formulates them to yourself more clearly as you speak.
Confrontation allows people to know one another better. If you are limitless with what you share with each other you can be more confident that the positive feelings are genuine and based on truth.
4.Less Likely to Be Misunderstood
Every confrontation you allow yourself brings with it greater clarity of what’s important to you. When others understand your values, feelings, and wants they won’t have to assume and find themselves in error.
Clearing your conscience gives you hope and energy. Being deceitful uses up a lot of energy keeping your true self concealed. Once you stop hiding you have lots more energy to spend on other things.
Being able to confront whatever comes your way boosts your confidence in yourself and your abilities. When you face something that scares you and realize that you survived, it prompts you to think, “What else can I do?”
When things that trouble you don’t get dealt with they can manifest into heart palpitations, insomnia, a skin reaction, or some other malady. I can even get a cold sore when I’m stressed. Stress compromises your immune system, but confrontation strengthens it. You feel great relief and a sense of healing after a confrontation.
