combative people frighten me. I literally feel like my back is against the wall. I tend to clam up. I don’t fight fair because I don’t know how to fight.
most of the time I’ll just take it on the chin as tears well up but sometimes I have to admit, the proverbial gloves come back at’cha, words spewing not knowing what I’m saying until it’s too late to take it back. I suck at fighting and quite honesty, I don’t want to be a good at it!
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Romans 12:17-18 NIV
Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before a dispute breaks out.
Proverbs 17:14 NLT
