Because fighting fire with fire concludes to nothing.
Even though I get told by so many people that i’m the nicest person they’ve ever met i’ll be the first to admit that I could be verbally nasty when i’m mad and/or annoyed about something, even when it’s over something small. The people closest to me know that (unfortunately) and anyone who’s ever argued with me know that. I’m feisty but it’s a bad habit. Situations get old and it’s ugly as fuck when I look back at it. My character gets ugly and so does the other persons. It’s pointless. With that saaaaid, i’m genuinely trying to self improve and be the bigger person; definitely saves wasted energy. As of everyone else, they could think whatever.
