Shannon R.’s Story for Conflict Resolution
Written By: Shannon R.
I know many people have issues with others who may not understand Gastroparesis and they may act horribly towards you because your outward appearance seems fine. Here’s my advice:
When you are angry with a person please try to find the solution to the problem, don't let it fester because when it does it turns into anger, and when we are angry it turns into depression. So in order to resolve our daily conflicts there are some very easy things that we can do to not carry it around with ourselves and make us sicker than what we already are.
There are some simple ways to rid us of it:
1 When we are in argument we must play the tape back and see the part that we played in this situation. We always have played a part not one of us is totally innocent.
2 When you see that you don't want to forgive that person we should pray for that person for 30 days and if that doesn't work we must pray for them even longer at times.
3. The third thing we can do is look for a good sized rock and carry it around with us to remind ourselves if this is a regret we would like to carry around with us for a long period of time or short period of time.
4 The next best thing that I really have a lot of respect for is that when we are ready to forgive that person is that we say: I forgive you, Thank You and I love you.
Number 4 will be the one that really catches a person off guard because they are not sure how to respond to it and the other party will feel pretty good about it and they might just forgive you for it.
