Do you know how to win a fight? Does it even matter who wins the fight? Perhaps it is all a matter of respect.
When considering this question I am confronted with thoughts of the golden rule.
This golden rule is golden for a reason. No matter what religion that you follow, if any at all, this holds true all the way through.
Why should we expect someone to treat us differently then we treat them?
This, of course, leads me to think about Karma and the fact that I believe that Karma plays into everything.
This principal of cause and effect wherein your actions today will influence what comes back to you tomorrow brings up a fascinating one.
What I can tell you is that, like Pinocchio, I let my conscious be my guide.
My intention is to have all my actions come from my true inner spirit. I like to turn away from negativity and live my life in positivity.
This is not to say that I am a Pollyanna. I am very, very aware of the realities of life.
The choice to see the good in others is conscious.
I focus on the fact that everyone is operating with the knowledge and ability that they have at the time.
If I do begin to react in a way that is not appropriate to the situation I will stop, take a deep, cleansing breath and then begin again. When all else fails then it is simply time to end the conversation.
How about you? Do you know how to fight? How do you refocus if you are not reacting in a way that is appropriate to the situation?
