By using that weapon you may be infringing on the humanitarian rights of the person you've upset. Instead,you must talk nicely to them and discuss your differences, reason with them, ask them why they disagree with you, THEN beat their brains out with a big stick !!!
that govern our everyday conduct towards other individuals, and towards society as a whole. The problems start when we realise that not everyone has the same set, or even any recogniseable principles at all.
We tend to expect others to live up to our perception of what is or isn't the right way to behave, and when they don't we sometimes feel puzzled, or even angry, and that can lead to conflict.
I've lived long enough to realise that trying to enforce one's own principles on others is pointless - it's the way to a stressful life - and I don't waste my time trying. I hope that I live up to my principles most of the time, but I'm a realist, and I know it's just not possible to do it all the time.
I agree with FE. I'm in a situation at the moment where I have been considering legal action and, to be honest, more 'direct' action, but I've decided to back down. It's painful to do so, but anything else won't make matters any better and one person, in particular, would be very upset by it. Sometimes it's better to back down and get on with life.
