Conflict can really run your perfectly good day right off the damn tracks. I'm talking emotions gone-full-rogue-Themla-and-Louise-off-the-cliff-shit. The onset of conflict washes over you with a mysterious heat that starts right in your cheeks and continues its journey all the way to your toes. I call it the hot wash. Then it settles right in your gut just to remind you that your day is shot. Great. Now what. I'll tell you what, but you already know. You need to learn how to communicate.
