Anti-Troll 3: Pick your Battles

So much of human conflict originates with simple miscommunication and misunderstanding.

Very often people make things worse by letting their emotions take over, or listening to the noise in their own heads, or leaping to assumptions, or just plain not-listening-in-the-first-place.

My point remains, in this as with all things (literally, this is a mantra I repeat often): pick your battles and only fight the ones that are necessary, instead of starting fights that never need to be.

Of course, once you have picked the battle, fight to the metaphorical death :)
