Grateful for the Fight
Using inner conflict to transform yourself and your relationships
by Viola Neufeld

“Don’t waste your conflict.” Grateful for the Fight goes beyond resolving conflict to using conflict to transform lives. Neufeld cautions that the urgency in today’s society to resolve conflict might be a sophisticated way of bypassing the true value of conflict. If we let it, conflict can be our ally—an unusual window into the self. By investigating our fears and releasing them, we stand to make a true and lasting change that will improve our daily lives and every one of our relationships. The premise of Grateful for the Fight, Neufeld’s first book, is that if we have the necessary fight with ourselves, we won’t be having unnecessary fights with others—and we will be more equipped to have the necessary ones. Using real case scenarios and personal experiences, Neufeld demonstrates how using outer conflict to work through inner conflict points to a greater capacity for growth and resilience in uncomfortable situations. If you’re ready to heal personal and mutual sensitivities, gain greater inner peace, and enjoy a relationship with more intimacy and vitality, welcome! You’ve come to the right place.
