"You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to."
I saw this on a sign online and thought it was a good one to post. Some of us get our backs against the wall when an argument is anywhere near us. We will be better off not getting involved especially when it is something that we can't do anything about or someone has their heels dug in and we will not change their minds on a subject.
So let us all reply "no thank you" to about 99% of argument's we are invited to and the 1% that have value and we are passionate about then proceed with kindness and caution.
