Are you a fight or flight kind of person?
Other times, confrontation can be like an adrenaline rush; getting to say something to someone who has been on your case forever.
If you’re anything like me, then you have a totally adverse reaction to confrontation.
Your hands shake, you stutter, and you basically get your ass handed to you from the other person.
If you’re NOT like me (lucky you), then you know exactly what to say during confrontation to put the other person in their place. People like you tend to thrive in high-pressure situations, which is a quality I WISH I had.
But confrontation isn’t always an opportunity to tear someone down. Sometimes, it’s there to make you and someone else more honest with each other.
If you have ever had a difficult time saying something to your friend that really needed to be said, then you know that you really only have two options: say it and hope for the best or keep it to yourself and possibly make things worse later on.
Confrontation CAN get ugly, but only if you say things to make the other person feel bad.
Instead, it’s always better to listen to what your friend has to say before saying your peace. Who knows? You both might be having the same problem.
And even if it seems like things got too ugly and your friendship might never be the same, apologies are always the best way to end confrontations, especially if you are confronting someone for a good reason.

If she hears that you are talking about her behind her back or that you don't like her, chances are she is going to say something to your face.

This can be kind of annoying, especially if you are trying to make amends, but sometimes you just have to let Taurus be Taurus.
Gemini doesn't particularly like dealing with confrontation, but she knows that it is much better to face a difficult situation instead of ignoring it and letting it fester.

She will let you know that you've hurt her, but she will also let you know that if it happens again, things are going to get nasty.

Capricorn doesn't necessarily like confrontation, but if she knows that it is the only way to deal with something, then she will do it for the sake of getting it over with.

Just be aware that Capricorn is much more calculated and smart than people think, so this might not end well for you.

She appreciates having friends and family who value her friendship, which is why it's so much harder for her to confront the people she loves.
She would rather have a calm discussion, but she knows that is not always going to happen.
Pisces doesn't like confrontation because she thinks of it as a way for the other person to tell her why they hate her.

To her, confrontation is like pulling teeth; complete and utter torture.
