explain why the above relationship is important in one's life
When you avoid conflict, you are also avoiding the chance to understand the reason behind why the conflict happened. It will not help you grow as a person but it will make you become a coward by escaping the reality. The more you avoid conflict, the more you are trying to alienate yourself from the person/people that surround you. It will give them the impression that you do not care at all. So, even if how painful the conflict is/was or will be, you have to face it no matter what.
