The other day a friend was poised to fight with her husband. Right or wrong, I did not see any possible way she could win the fight so I told her she may as well not have it. Fighting takes a lot out of you, especially in your 40’s. It just doesn’t make sense to fight a battle, get all banged up, destroy the day it not a string of them, just because.
This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to eat the problem. If you can’t win, it may be because you need more evidence. You need to bolster up your side the argument and fight another day, but you see what I am saying. There are precious few (good) reasons so start a fight you know you can’t win. People do this anyway, all the time. I’m putting this out here for people who may want to grow up their game or think in terms of tactics.
Energy is precious, why waste it. Peace ain’t bad either…are you sure you want to start a war?
How often do you start a fight, that common sense knows you can’t win?
