Personality Complex - Day 197

I'm thankful there are different personalities. Life would be boring if there weren't. Some personalities are always in conflict with each other. Some personalities work in incredible unity with one another. But does that mean we only spend time with those who we don't fight with? I heard someone say that if you're never in conflict you're probably never communicating. Should you see a couple who is literally never in conflict as a good thing? I don't think so. At some time in your life you will disagree. The question is what do you do? The reaction tends to be either to either run away/attack/combination of both.

I'm thankful for the good examples I've had when people do react in a way that doesn't involve attacking or running. If you ever find someone who you can have a significant conflict with and then be able to, with humility and wisdom, work through it. Please treasure them. Someone who can forgive you is worth millions. Thank the Lord for them. They're precious.
