From the Peacemaker Blog:

Conflict can make life very awkward. It often catches us off guard and leads us to say and do things we later regret. When someone offends us, we often react without thinking. Soon it is as if we are sliding down a slippery slope and things are going from bad to worse. As the illustration shows, this slippery slope can drop off in two directions.

Take a couple minutes and look more in depth at this diagram by exploring the escape responses, the attack responses, and the peacemaking responses outlined at this helpful site.  I will definitely be visiting it again as it seems very biblical and gospel-centered.
