I have always hated confrontation, but I learned that if it is really important, I have to put on my big girl britches and fight the good fight.

I don't think that is avoiding the conflict. It's telling yourself you can't get what you want without a conflict ridden exchange that must be avoided for reasons you can't fully accept. That leaves you conflicted. There are so many different ways to rethink problems and their solutions.

Sometimes, not always, a situation needs to be addressed rather than confronted.
I do not think I was ever taught enough techniques to address situations where disagreements are imminent.
Instead, it seems much easier to retreat.
Instead, I need some counter-measures! lol 😂

I think this quote has value but the value is determined by how a person perceives his/her avoidance of conflict.
If avoided with resentment, then yes, an internal war can result. Feelings of being used, feelings of disagreeing on the inside while smiling on the outside, feelings of not really trying to keep the peace but rather feeling inadequate and lacking the skills to deal with the conflict.
Conflict isn't necessarily a bad thing; it is how it is handled that will either resolve the situation or make it an all out battle.
This also depends upon if the conflict is on a personal level or if the conflict is being observed as an outsider.
