A situation in which you're defenceless?
Walk into it because you should? Or walk away from it because you simply can?
It depends on the personality of the person. I would walk into it. I know I will be defeated, but I will learn the strengths of my opponent. It is an experience, probably a rare one :-)
.......someone steals all of my Kate Bush records, kidnaps my two pussycats, takes away my 'pen' and bars me from reading any more hubs by the (Mighty) Gift of Pen - yeah, let me sit back and think about it, yeah that oughta do it, not that I ever want that to happen!!!!! lake erie time 2:17pm Ontario Canada
For me it depends upon the situation (whether it's recurring, etc.) and upon the players. I tend to walk away from a new situation which is a variation on a negative theme and in which the outcome hints at hopeless friction. I sometimes walk into an adverse or questionable situation if I foresee some benefit, such as an opportunity to express and experience compassion.
depends on the situation I suppose. Hard to answer without a little more info.
I'm referring to a situation I feel is inevitable in the near future, and it evokes alot of emotion in me. On the one hand, I know that it has to happen for everyone involved, but if I walk into it, I'll be defenceless because the people are such that just won't listen to what anyone has to say. They do their best to mercilessly scandalise you. And its because of this trait that I need to confront them. On the other hand, I could be defensive and walk away, never see them, never confront them, never have to feel awkward. But I know that the more time that comes between us, the worse it will get. Theres a loneliness lingering around me when I'm amongst them, so much so that I want to stay away. But I don't want to be disrespectful and give off the impression that I don't seek peace.
Also I'm tempted to vote epigramman's answer up simply for referring to me as 'mighty'. xD
It sounds to me like you already know the answer. I have always found that it is incredibly hard to truly walk away from anything. Confront what needs confronting and free yourself of it so you can move on to more positive engagements. And remember there is no such thing as defenseless. Be mighty.
It depends on what's at stake. Some things are worth pain and suffering even if that's all you really get out of it.
I would walk into it as you can only learn from your mistakes.
Walk away... then come back later, prepared and armed with good defence!

Is it more mature to walk away than it is to staying involved in a petty bickering match?There are all sorts of people in the world, and it's safe to say that we all don't get along - especially on HP. There are one or two people who I've interacted with here who seem to want nothing more...

It's time to disappear.When do you think it's appropriate to look at a situation or person, and realize that the best option is to just walk away?
