This makes me very angry, and I get into these kinds of conflicts all of the time. They usually say something about sports or how they did something better than me. I hear them and I just let it go. This is one way to deal with conflict. You can take it and look the other way. This has a positive effect on the people around me at the time because I reacted to the problem in a positive way. If I would have reacted in a negative way, that could result in a fight and other people getting hurt. People should react this way to conflict. People hurt others when they react negatively to a conflict, and people that react positively to a conflict usually help or make no change to the other people. You should always find a way to react to conflicts in a good way. When you and another person has a problem with each other, you should never hurt or harm the other people. Always turn the other way and find another way to deal with
