I frequently hear people talk about confrontation. How we deal with confrontation, in fact, is generally considered one of the defining points in someone’s personality. Does someone shy away from it? Do they run toward it? Are they comfortable in conflicts, can they resolve them? Sometimes people will use phrases like “non-confrontational” or “peaceful” to describe themselves in a positive light. “I’m very non-confrontational. I can get along with everyone.” In this brave new world of political correctness and buzzwords that we use to dance around issues that we disagree with, tolerance is the new integrity.
Except…there is no integrity in tolerance for the sake of not hurting feelings. There is no honor in being non-confrontational to the point of cowardice.
Read the rest here. It's good. And the truth.
