“Describe a situation in the classroom or workplace where you experienced an interpersonal conflict and how you resolved this. Include strategies you implemented to resolve the situation.“

The essay was written by me, I was requested to “Describe a situation in the classroom or workplace where you experienced an interpersonal conflict and how you resolved this. Include strategies you implemented to resolve the situation.“
The feedback from the grader was that the direct communication came across negatively and while you were trying to solve a problem, some of the conversation that was described had negative tones. They essay described your thoughts about what should be a good team, and what lessons you have learned from your mother, but we want to see the direct interactions with others when there is a problem. Do you present positive solutions? Do you directly communicate and work with others, and not only in your self-interest? Do you have interactions that are not intended to have negative consequences on someone else purposefully?
