The Bigger Person Dilemma
Why is it that, during an argument, we try to be the "bigger person?" As I'm getting older, I really don't undertand that concept. I've tried it before and you know what??!!!
IT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME.
I will typically try to hold my tongue and end up blowing a gasket about 10 minutes later. My new philosphy is that I don't want to be the "better person" because that means that I'm ok being a victim. If I'm called a name...I'll be calling one back. If I'm insulted...be prepared to hear more insults from my end. I'm not always nice and friendly but I'm definitely not the agressor in a fight; so I rarely start one.
Take heed for those that know me: Don't throw punches if you're scared to get hit.
