About Inner Conflicts

        Premise - the personality of every adult or child is composed of a group of semi-independent subselves which have differing (conflicting) roles, goals, values, and perceptions of the world. One implication is that "relationship problems" are really conflicts among my subselves, your subselves, and between our subselves.  Common symptoms of in-ternal conflicts are ambivalence, changing or making up my mind, feel-ing torn or unsure, self-doubt, indecision, procrastination, confusion, and seeing both sides.

        This suggests that solving any major relationship problem requires all people involved to value, identify, and resolve all three of these dispu-tes well enough. That's most likely to happen if each person's inner fa-mily is guided by their wise true Self. Lesson 1 here is about freeing the true Self to lead and manage internal disputes. Lesson 2 teaches you how to use seven powerful skills to resolve inner and outer conflicts ef-fectively. Your parents probably never taught you these skills.
