I've had issues reading books and need to get advice somehow. Can anybody suggest what I should be looking for. Something that will help an emotionally immature that hates conflicts to open up more. There must be something out there.

emotionally immature that hates conflicts

Knowing something of yourself is a start. Now you need to dig deep and discover what's within.
Try Living the Truth by Keith Ablow, MD.
(ISBN 0-316-01782-5) ~ Dr. Keith Ablow, bestselling author and host of a new daily one-hour daytime-TV talk show, presents his first self-help book. Based on more than 20 years of clinical experience and highlighting stories from his own practice, Ablow shows how ignoring or burying painful memories and experiences can negatively affect every aspect of our lives, and he presents strategies to help the reader transform the pain of the past into the power of the future. In a world where short-term talk therapy and medication are the latest trends to "fixing" an unhappy life, Ablow's message is controversial. But though examining the past can be daunting, LIVING THE TRUTH is as comforting and rewarding as it is transformative. And through Ablow's fine storytelling skills, empathetic voice, and straight-up advice, the experience of reading this extraordinary book becomes the first step to living a truly authentic life.

As a standard, I definitely recommend a good book on boundaries... "Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No..." by Cloud and Townsend is a really good one. Within conflict there are often boundary issues - everything from the cause of the conflict to how you address it respectfully - and having a clear idea of boundaries in mind can really help.
