There is a conflict between you and another person or between you and yourself.
Your spirit has given you the tools you need to shape and protect yourself: these tools are your emotions. In a time of conflict, it is easy to default to anger, fear, or frustration. These are positive emotions -- they exist to help you. However, it is important to make sure you are using the best emotion to deal with your situation, because the first emotion you find might not be the one you need.
