Very often, resolving the problem requires an approach based on two key principles. The first is the ability to place yourself in the shoes of the other person. This is easier said than done, but a few simple exercises can help you see things from the other party's perspective and locate the common ground between you. The second, equally important and supporting the first, is simply communicating better. Talking openly about both the things that displease you and the qualities you admire in the other person, and making them feel comfortable enough to do the same, is often all that is needed to resolve conflict long before it becomes unmanageable. The following articles aren't and can't be all-encompassing, but the advice they contain has been tested time and again over the years. None of them offer a true “one size fits all” solution, though, so talking about any specific difficulties you may be facing with a counselor will rarely be a bad idea.
