Stay and fight, or run away?  
Are you more likely to avoid conflict (of whatever kind) or engage it head-on? Is there an instance where you avoided a problem that you now wish you could go back and take a different course of action -- what was the situation and why do you wish you'd handled it differently?

This is a huge guilt of mine, but I do tend to do whatever it takes to avoid conflict. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes there is a need for standing up for yourself and having to go head-on, but I do tend to bend over backwards, especially for those that I love, in order to keep the peace and avoid the mess.

There are plenty of instances of when I should have stood up for myself. It has cost me not only monetarily, but with my self respect, as well.

I feel like it’s a balance that has to be evaluated at whatever situation happens. It’s kind of like the whole “Pick your battles” saying that’s pretty well-known, there’s no same correct answer for every situation.
