Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,635 People

    I actually avoid fights like the plague.

    I'd rather look like a ***** than fight some dumbass trying to look good. However, push too far or mess with my friends I will send you to the hospital. Just saying.

    I don't have very strong opinions on a lot of

    things because I'm an open easy going person, but one thing I will fight for is anything that I love. It brings out the fight in me I never knew I had and I love it.

    I Never Knew

    I've always said this line "I'm a lover not a fighter" but the additional ending is true and I must now complete this quote. I've always stated that everyone has it in them to kill or do extreme harm. There's always a button that can be pushed. I never knew what my button was...

    I have always been really bad at conflict.

    So bad, in fact, that sometimes I have been a doormat when I should have fought. That doesn't mean that I can't fight, or that I'm not going to! There is one weapon that I am going to use in my upcoming wars: The Pen (well...laptop). I want to write about the people I see...

    I hate fighting so much!

    There's nothing great about it unless you are fighting for the one you love, but I'd rather talk things out and hope for the best.

    I am an extremely patient

    This is how more people should be.

    Respond, don't react. Find your own truth and live by it. Defend it, but not in such a way that it leaves you unwilling to hear others. I'll fight for me. My beliefs. My rights. ... and one day hopefully, I'll fight for the one I love. But I'm not about to lower myself to the...

    I can't stand to see someone I care about being

    I am a very peaceful person.

    I try to consider Jesus' approach in everything I do because we are made in his and his fathers image and I want to start acting like it. I will fight for who I love, but violence is not the way.

    My girlfriend of 3 years recently developed a

    crush on a co worker. She wants to rethink out commitment before we decide this will be forever. I want to give her the space and time, but it feels like I am letting her go. I am hoping for the best and struggling with the reality. I will do whatever it takes to make it work.
