TOEFL Essay - How you resolve conflicts is your opinion

Q. Resolving problems between individuals or groups is important. What should be considered or kept in mind in resolving problems between individuals or groups? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

The world was created from conflict. Life is based on conflict. We see a tiger consume a giraffe and that’s conflict. There is no resolution. There is only tomorrow for giraffes. Frequently, even tomorrow is a surprise to their eyes and saved necks. We humans have greater chances of survival because we rely on resolution. Resolution takes numerous shapes, but its goal is similar. Its goal balances what a group over here needs with a group over there. Resolutions need to be considerate and avoid violent priorities, but they must clear heads and ensure satisfaction.
Resolution is the foundation of modern diplomacy, and group dynamics follow national ways of agreeing. We respect each other and certain rules exist to guide us. There are forces beyond our understanding that make another group act toward us in a way we don’t like. We itemize each torrent and in the end, we throw it in their face. We achieve resolution when there is nothing to get thrown in the face in anyone’s hand. Resolution is when I reach across the cubicle and clean the face of someone whom I want to throw out the window. These might be my violent priorities, but I must not indulge them. Prioritizing throwing a coworker from a window still typing in their chair is violence. In other words, any resolution consider not just to appease others but to appease ourselves. How much are we willing to give others that our own anger be appeased? If we can balance this, we then say with a smile that we avoided violent priorities. We must deprioritize violence.
A resolution must also clear heads and ensure satisfaction of parties involved. This is partly covered by what has been already mentioned. However, in addition to appeasement, clearing heads ensures that conflict between the individuals or groups has cooled down. This conflict should stay cold. There should be nothing in the resolution that further stokes the fires of face throwing torrents of madness. Such torrents bring up more back and forth and can bring conflict again from nothing. Resolution must be friendly in a permanent way.
