    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...

    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...

    Conflict Resolution

    I never finished my degree, but when I was going to school, my major was communications.  I took a course in Conflict Resolution and Mediation.  I loved this course! I learned how to help solve a conflict between myself and others, and how...

    Many people fail to realize that

    if everyone strived to obtain better careers then your a** wouldn't be able to get a cheeseburger from McDonalds at 1 A.M. People who put down others that work in places like these shouldn't be allowed to order food. You can't demand a service while simultaneously degrading...

    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...

    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´ve never liked discussions,

    let alone arguements, and on a site like this, I find it pointless to have confrontations on sensitive issues like politics, religious beliefs, etc. I respect people´s beliefs and opinions, listen to them if they share them with me, but I don´t enter into any discussion on...

    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 don't feel comfortable

    but i am learning not to be afraid of or angry at confrontation. I was bullied because of how i looked. Having more chances of being bullied makes it even more necessary for me to stand up for myself. I have rights to express my views, regardless of others' opinion on me.
