Do you turn away or face your detractors?
I hate to say it depends. But it depends. Sometimes it’s better to walk away from the drama that detractors bring.
There are other times that I feel like I have to stand up for myself. Once in awhile, I manage to do both. I will speak my mind and then leave the area. There’s no reason for a situation to escalate to the point of everyone yelling in the streets. It has happened to me once or twice. Alcohol might have been involved. I don’t drink as much anymore. It’s more fun to watch other people make bad choices. Of course, it’s not not always fun to watch couples fight every weekend.
Anyway . . .
