Life is the battlefield

It all begins a minor disagreement. Then, one person gets so offended, they find it necessary go out on a limb to try to destroy the other. This is not new to any of us who went to junior high school. If you look at the history of the world, there is continual evidence of this. These bullies relish in finding people who will blindly follow them and do their dirty work for them. They are sent out to be the annoyances. Should there be a response or reaction, the aggressor will often give a surprised look, leaving their victim to be the overly-reactive screaming banshee. The blame is transferred to the vocal one. Of course, the bully and his or her clan will stand on the soapbox of sanctimony. They claim to have been picked on unduly, satisfied in their ability to have turned the tables on their intended "victim." Another set up. Another, again, takes the fall. People haven't changed very much over the centuries. No matter where we are, or situation we may interact as human beings, there is likely to be someone who will try to turn any situation into a battlefield, picking fights that are unnecessary. Have you encountered this type of situation in your life? In your workplace? At school? Social media? Others? Do you always walk away? Or do you defend yourself, your name, your honor? While you are thinking about which of your experiences best illustrates this, perhaps Pat Benatar's, "Love is a battlefield," will give you inspiration. (Hard to believe this was released in 1983, thirty-four years ago!)

I hate this kind of problems:( I will never understand why people make bullying, they just try to feel superior, they can't do what they want their hole life. I rather be stay from them, if they mess with me then I have to act and do something.

@Shavkat Unless I subject myself to scrutinizing for a purpose, I sure as hell do not want any part of it, especially from people on a website for free speech. But I welcome the debate. Just don't like it when I respond and then someone who wants the right to talk/speak wants to shut me up. LOL

@ridingbet I have verbal boxing gloves always ready. If I could get away with it, I would take it on in the public forum here. I might get my point across, but I would end up being banned from this site. And everybody would think I was so mean
Regarding your post which I enjoyed reading, two quotes comes to mind. "Power abhors a vacuum" and "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely". In the stage of life, roles can and are often switch and interchangeable. The oppressed today becomes the oppressor tomorrow. History is replete with examples. There are no good or bad guys. Only good or bad circumstances that we need to play out with whatever cards we are dealt out with.
