  •  Fight or flight...or best spent energy? (2+ / 0-)

    I have a lot of people in my life that I know will never change my mind. I also know I won't change their mindset. Sometimes, I'll go into it for awhile but actually do have co-workers of my husband's where we have agreed to not "go there" because there is no changing either one of our stances. We will listen to one another respectfully but each of us has such strong feelings that it becomes hours of round-about with no end.

    One of them was a first responder and searched for my child whom he thought was in the house when it was on fire last year. It taught me a lot about perspective. He's a good man.

    I base my decision on how much energy do I want to spend? And then, look at where I will spend it?

    It's hard to not engage but sometimes it's best to redirect.
