What Conflict Avoidance Is

Conflict avoidance is a type of people-pleasing behavior that typically arises from a deep rooted fear of upsetting others.

Many of these tendencies can be traced back to growing up in an environment that was dismissive or hypercritical:

  • enduring uncomfortable situations instead of expressing issues openly
  • denying an issue exists by ignoring it
  • fear of disappointing others
  • deliberately sidestepping conversations
  • silently resenting unresolved issues.
