Change means movement. Movement means friction. Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict.

-Saul Alinsky


Your situation is rife with conflict and competition. There is likely a group setting where everyone is trying to lead and no one will follow. It is time to find mediation and work cooperatively to achieve a goal that has been held up by the current conflict.


A recent struggle is at an end and you may find yourself relieved. It may be prudent to consider if, in avoiding conflict, you've let your own wants or needs be set aside. Not all conflict is bad.
