Every day, all of us have to face any number of problems; some of them can be easily disposed of in no time at all, others are trickier and dealing with them calls for time, effort, creativity and emotional input. A point in case is situations involving conflict which a number of people find unpleasant. However conflict is a natural ingredient of interpersonal relationships. A conflict may be perceived in a negative way as a source of tension and anxiety, or on the contrary, it maybe sought out and welcome. A certain level of conflict is conditional for a creative, lively and constructive atmosphere: no conflict, no life.
