Why do humans fight so?  It is learned behavior and it is wired into the body.  It is a combination of the two.  You are programmed to protect the self.  Fight or flight is hard to avoid when threatened.  You learn to act on this even when the threat has passed, causing you to become blind to alternative ways of dealing with those who do not think as you do.  Fighting is necessary for self-preservation, but always remember there is a self and a Self.  As you get caught in the throes of a physical reaction, maintain enough awareness to ask of the Self, “Is there a better way?”

You are so very loved.
