    This is what makes sense to me. I've never been in a fight before. I haven't started one and nobody has ever tried to start one with me. I always do exactly what I need to do to make sure things get settled. I would defend myself or an innocent person to whatever extent was required, if we were under physical attack, killing the aggressors if I had to. I've never been in a situation like that, and if people are just talking shit, then they're just idiots who you can ignore. I don't feel responsible for other people's emotions whatsoever. I can offer advice and wisdom if they want it, but I am not going to "take care of them". The best thing I can do for a person is help them become independent.

    There's a rational explanation from a man who's never picked a fight or ran from one, but who always uses reason, says what needs to be said, and does what needs to be done.

    I got it but I'm learning to choose those I help more wisely.
