Arguing With A Fool
What does another person's mood, tone of voice, or state of foolishness have to do with my course of action? Nothing, unless I decide otherwise.
I have learned that arguing with a fool is like beating my head against a brick wall. Yet, until recently, I would always dive right into the arguments, because that was what the fool seemed to want. I discovered that I don't have to react just because I have been provoked, and I don't have to take harsh words to heart. I certainly don't have to allow them to provoke me into doing anything I don't want to do.
