It’s important to know when to lie low. For example, not engage in an argument.
Actually, I guess it’s not even an argument -if you don’t listen to the other side. It’s a lecture.
” But this is not an argument. We’re just discussing this.”, the other person will say. Calling it a discussion when only one side gets heard is not a discussion; if you are continually talked over, it’s an assault. So there is a restriction placed on who gets heard and who is listened to.
You don’t have to be amenable to the downright ridiculous; learn how not to be drawn into someone else’s need for instant gratification. It’s not a discussion, it’s a diatribe- an angry critical and abusive speech.
Refusing this type of contest is not losing; it’s winning.
