Stage 5: Reconcile the Differences
If the previous steps are done sufficiently well, this step will be the easiest. At this point, it should be straight-forward what is the best way to resolve the conflict. However, you should also keep in mind:
Short term v. long term benefits
Emotional pressures (such as anxiety, depression, anger, and compulsive urges)
Unhealthy influences (such as addiction or other self destructive behavior)
If you have any other concerns, seek professional help.
