one of the things my mom taught me early on was that it is always best to avoid conflict whenever possible. my mom is such a pacifist that she takes it to an extreme even to her own detriment. it does make me wonder, though, if avoidance is the key to safety. if you never put yourself in a situation where you may get into conflict, haven’t you saved yourself from the misery of that conflict?
how far do you go to avoid these sticky situations? sometimes i wonder.
