    No Sense...

    ...having a belief without the will to stand up for it. I hate conflict... but I will stand up for what is right, even in the face of conflict. My beliefs would not mean that much to me if I was willing to see them trampled upon! But beyond that, I am very...

    Hate It

    I hate conflict but there comes a time when you have to stand up for what is right.  I will always stand up for the underdog.  I will always stand up for abused persons.  I will always stand up for children. There are many things I believe in and will risk the...

    It amazes me how shy

    and scared I am to have disagreements and debates with people except for with two subjects. I'm always self conscious, thinking "maybe I shouldn't speak because I'm probably wrong" but when it comes to defending God, and when it comes to defending my family I know I KNOW BEST...

    This has evolved within me.  I tend to avoid conflict, however if something is concerned with beliefs and principles, I will stand up for them.  It can be sometimes a weakness, as I still try to stand up against arrogance and opinions that will not change, as they...

    The FightOne Sunday my husband

    and I spent the day cleaning up an empty house. So full of dust and paint, we were looking forward to a hot shower. Parking the van at a petrol station shop, I waited in the driver's seat as my partner went in to get supplies. When he came back he walked towards me, handed me...

    To A Degree

    In short, I am not one to rock the boat but if my back is against the wall, regardless of the consequence, I will fight you. If I am threatened in any way, even if I have no chance of success, I will fight to the death. Of course, if I am not effected either way, and its just a...

    I Stand Up For What I Believe.

    I don't push my beliefs on other people but when I feel like my toes are getting stepped on I will say something. One thing that bothers me, for example, is how some people are offended by stuff like people celebrating Christmas or other holidays. I think everyone should be free...

    This explains it well.

    I hate confrontation. Hate it. I will often try to avoid meaningless and useless disputes. However, I will stand up for what I believe in, and I will stand up for myself - because no one has the right to tell me who or what I am, or what I should or should not be doing, or what...

    I don't enjoy arguments or confrontations... I suffer from anxiety, so these two things makes things difficult for me and send me into panic attacks and have my life spiraling out of control. Sleepless nights, lots of tears, not eating, and jumpy too. :-( So, I try to avoid both...

    I use the pill. I don't like condoms because they make sex feel artificial, like I want skin to skin, not skin to rubber. It feels nice but nothing beats actual human touch. xx

    Life is too short to worry about whether you like me or not. Who cares if you don't, there's probably a good chance that I don't like you either.
