Welcome to Module 6! Now that you've successfully navigated and resolved your first conflict using the Perfect Vision conflict resolution process, it's time to understand more deeply what is going on behind the scenes when you are in a conflict with someone you love.
You probably have noticed that there is more than one story happening at once during a conflict. Some of the stories are more logical and present tense, others are childhood patterns playing themselves out, and still, others seem to be more universal conflicts that all men and women can fall prey to.
Each of these stories is a "layer" of conflict. In this lesson, we will show you all the different layers of conflict and how each can have an effect on you and your ability to keep your cool.
The more you understand about conflict, the more "exit ramps" you can build for yourself and your partner when conflict arises, to make sure that you can resolve each conflict while continuing to treat each other the way you most want to treat those you love.
“Emotional Maturity means that your awareness operates even during the most profound emotional states."
