    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...

    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...

    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...
