Conflict and control are never easy.
What can smooth the path is understanding the rationale and believing in the merit of a decision.
Conflict and control bring change if you're open to it, but sometimes challenge you to stand up for your idea even if it is not welcome.
When I hit these rough patches in the road that challenge my ideals, vision and work, I think of those who battled much greater wars than me and made the courageous choice, those that stood up for freedom and human rights--the ones we read about and look to for strength, but that we don't always emulate.
Conflict and control are never easy, but it's essential to garner the truth that lies beneath the pain and suffering.
Conflict and control are lonely places to be.
