Before he participated in the long-term training program, Mr. Somporse frequently snapped at other people. He also dealt with conflict quickly instead to trying to achieve real peace. His only assumption was that “peace is not war.” In fact, Mr. Somporse did not understand peace. After training with PBO, he realized that peace is the ability to remain calm when responding to conflicts, forgiving others, and not holding grudges against other people. He no longer avoids conflict and does not have a bad attitude.
Mr. Somporse applied his new peace KASH to a conflict with his friend. The friend used to speak very rudely with him. This made Mr. Somporse very upset and angry, making him snap angrily at his friend. Because of his personal transformation, Mr. Somporse is now able to remain calm and resolve the conflict instead of running away. He explained himself so that he and his friend understood their differences and could work through the conflict.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
