I completely agree. I'm saying that it's not a bad thing when it happens, and that always trying to prevent it isn't the best course of action, either.
Conflict is going to happen in an environment like this. Do we always handle it and each other with kid gloves? Ultimately it weakens us and enables people to overlook things that are staring them right in the face.
I'm not going to willingly inflict pain on myself without a purpose, but I will stop and take inventory when somebody taps a sensitive spot.
