Why we all need to learn to handle conflict: Truth #3

See also

If you know anyone in college, you know the first year stories of roommates and not getting along. Why? Because, as Godwin tells us, most of us don't argue well and are naturally inclined toward bad conflict. This means that most people don't know how to resolve those differences with roommates because they react, just as all of us are naturally inclined to do. Relationships are damaged, roommates are changed, and we don't personally grow.

Can this be different? Yes, and throughout this series, we will discover Godwin's suggestions for handling conflict so that first year of college does not include changing roommates multiple times.

Truth #4? Conflict with unreasonable and reasonable people. Stay tuned, or subscribe so you don't miss an article in this series.
