I Am Not Scared by Conflict

Open access


This article is based on the clinical experience in a Family Planning Clinic and, through the two reported cases, takes into account the issue of family conflict in its lights and shadows. The feeling of non-fulfillment that makes man unhappy seems to be the origin of the main family tensions, the extreme consequence of which is seeing the other as an enemy and judge him on the basis of one’s denied Selves. An openness to dialogue with a view to communal reciprocity helps to become more aware of one’s polarities and to accept one’s judging Selves without transfer or fear. The complex path of identification involves having oneself mirrored back, not an enemy to face but a viaticum for transcendence, a window opening itself to the world and our humanity.
