It’s of novices to think every battle* can be won. It’s immature to even think of this possibility. There are people who think everything is possible though. And who am I to change their mind when I have no control over that?
I control myself and have more than enough trying to do so.
I let them win not because I lack character, but mainly because it’s more difficult to control oneself, one’s character and one’s mind than letting everything go and exploding — saying things and acting unconsciously to only regret it later.
