What is it about an argument that is so painful? I tried to state my position. I tried to be clear and clean. I meant well but needed to stand up for myself. I pointed out where I was and what I was and wasn't willing to do. I took a chance. I thought it out.
I got flattened. I lighted a candle of conflict and got blasted with a nuclear missile.
I don't have those kinds of weapons to respond with. I'm not interested in annihilation.
