    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...

    I Have To...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
