Hate to fight

Written last night when I was extremely sleepy:

I would make a lousy soldier, because I lack the killer instinct.  As I grow older, I feel less energetic.  Is this due to depression, poor nutrition, or something else?  I don’t know.  All I know is that it is simply not worth fighting for something.  What will be will be.  Who cares?

It takes a lot of energy to hate someone.  There are certain people I dislike, and I wouldn’t go out of my way to be nice to them by inviting them to my parties.  On the other hand, I don’t have the desire to hurt them, either.  It just takes too much energy to do that.

You might say that I lack passion and enthusiasm.  Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.  But, I’d rather be soft and gentle than raring to go the extra mile to accomplish something.  I hate to argue.  I hate to fight.  I hate to be loud and feisty.  Yeah, that takes too much energy. 

I respond to kindness and gentleness.  Watch me smile and welcome you with open arms.

    I’m much the same. Personally I think the world could use more quiet and gentle!

    Meeeeeeeeeeee, too!!! I can’t be a hater — funny because my mother is one — and, yeah, it’s too much work.

    I’d much prefer to agree to disagree.

    I am completely with you! I don’t like quarreling, but…but recently I stopped seeing a woman who had been criticizing me, my house, my clothes… you name it. I couldn’t stand it anymore and asked her politely not to come anymore. When I see her I ignore her. That’s not so nice, is it??

    There is no reason to expend energy fighting or being mean. Just walk away and let it go. Anger is a double edged sword and it cuts both ways.
