Great reply Oz. Hope all is well with you!
It's always good to see you, my friend.
Yes, I'm good at picking my own battles. lol
If I could pick battles... I wouldn't have any..
Keep your powder dry and your aim steady.
Same here, people who pick battles (usually bullies) must not have anything else to do. Oh well, guess it takes all kinds.
What a great question, Sukie, and I've suggested it for "POTD".
Yes, I do believe we can pick our own battles. When other people wish to battle with us though, we can only choose how and if to engage in them. There are surely times, when simply ignoring them or not defending ourselves or others would be a decidedly milquetoast "pick"....
I agree Piper, it's a great question. I don't have many battles to pick, I'm a lover not a fighter.
Not always. If I know a battle is inevetable, I do like to choose the time and place.
Sometimes. And sometimes you get to pick when and where.
Sometimes we can, sure; not everyone, every time but yeah.
Yes, often you can choose whether to escalate a situation or not.
Not always, sometimes they are chosen for you by someone else. Make peace not war.
