Embracing Confrontation

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

It seems we live in a culture where we’re expected to avoid confrontation at all costs.

Where we are so afraid of offending, even if in fact, what we have to say is true and just and good.

Always so afraid of saying or doing the ‘wrong thing’ -

Worried that we may be outcast or ostracised by the mob that holds an opposing view.

But you lose something when you live a completely passive life

When you accept things as they are instead of continuing to reach for what they could or even indeed, should be.

At the very least, being willing to stand up for something when it really matters.

Because reality is, it’s only in the clash of ideas that new ideas emerge or old ones are re-enforced.

In this way, confrontation is a necessary part of growth.

It’s a necessary part of your growth.

It’s part of what moves you forward and helps you establish, or re-establish foundations

The fact of the matter is, the world is in a state of flux

There will always be opposing positions and ideas

But instead of silencing the ones we, or as a society, might not agree with,

We should learn to embrace them, grapple with them, chew them up and spit them back out.

Give them at the very least the consideration they deserve

If anything, iron sharpens iron, so too does one man sharpen another

So you should embrace confrontation as a way of developing your ideas further, with the conviction that it will move you a little closer to fulfilling your inherent potential

Because it’s only in challenging yourself in this way, that you can break out and begin embracing all that you are and all that you’re not.

So don’t be afraid to speak the truth in Love,

Avoidance has never been a useful strategy to propel anything or anyone forward.
