Ha, yeah... well I was just thinking earlier that on the rare occasions that I am totally determined to have my way then pretty much nothing gets in my way, and the fact that I can usually point to an enormous back-list of times in just the recent past alone, when I've let another person completely have their way and just adapted to the situation, means it doesn't matter how much the other person stamps their foot or cries or what it means to them to have their way this time, I'm damn well having mine
I think this way I've tended to pretty much have my way every time in my life that it's ever mattered to me. And the fact that usually I don't even have an agenda or preference has tended to be what's made me laid back and easy going, but that's often been mistaken for me being a pushover, so people have been shocked with how inflexible I can be when something actually does matter.
Sometimes though I give way, thinking things don't matter when in fact they do and I shouldn't, and it's only with hindsight that I see I was too easy going and maybe I should've had an agenda and stuck to it, but I didn't and because of that I've often found myself a bit trapped. But then it comes full circle again because once I realize I'm trapped it really MATTERS to get out, so I will and to hell with anything else.
