They say that discretion is the better part of valor. So true ! Avoid unnecessary conflicts. Conflicts, fights and quarrels cause great amount of stress. It is impossible to avoid conflicts in practical life. There are many situations where we are in conflict with family, friends, office co-workers, boss etc. Keep aside your ego and avoid conflicts that are unnecessary. Address only those conflicts which are critical and high priority. Continue to ignore or postpone minor issues. Address these later when you have time and energy to solve them. Remember that you do not involve your ego in all issues. Look at the issues objectively and solve them.
