A Life Without Escalation
I’m not much for fighting with words or fists. I’ve tried both and I just never liked how I felt after engaging in fights. I don’t like the feeling I get from adrenaline. I don’t like the resentments that hang around for days after a fight. I don’t like the worry or the feeling I get when I’ve gone too far with my words. I don’t like living a life in fear. So I found a way to choose not to escalate when I am confronted by someone who wants to engage in a verbal argument, and I win a little peace for us every time.
