Some people are determined to take a stand. They feel that backing down is a sign of weakness so they are willing to take a stand and hold their ground.
Taking a stand is ok IF your stance is in the right place. If you are taking a stance just for the sake of doing so and aren’t in the right place, you are wasting your time and resources and everyone else as well.
If you are taking a stand because you are right, that is completely different but realize, the other group might think they are in the right place as well.
Be willing to stand your grand if, and only if, you know you are right otherwise you might be defending the wrong location.
Have a great day!
