Zero Response!

Today’s Prompt. When faced with confrontation, do you head for the hills or walk straight in? Was there ever a time you wished you’d had the opposite reaction?

In both physical and verbal confrontations, my answer is: neither.

Jacques mentioned a while back that I really should get either pepper spray or a stun gun to carry with myself at all times. That would be the worst idea ever. When someone suddenly jumps out at me (as Luke LOVES to do) I freeze. Literally. My heart skips a couple of beats, my breathing stops, words run dry. There is just no way that I will ever be able to defend myself with any kind of weapon whatsoever. I freeze so bad, I can’t even scream! I would much rather roll over and play dead than to risk being attacked with my own weapon.

Unfortunately the same goes for verbal confrontations and I avoid them like the plague. As I have mentioned before, I am not good at this talking thing. I need time to prepare my argument. When suddenly confronted with an argument I say the dumbest things and, basically (I hate this word) I turn into a sheep. Baaaa! Give me time to prepare, however, I will most definitely give you a run for your money!

I think the fight-or-flight-handing-out-ceremony-memo never reached me and I am left in limbo.

I am a free spirit born in the Free State, 20 years to late. I am Ying and Yang. I am the girl next door who prefers daisies and peace rallies, but can just as easily rock at a rally. I love all things Latin and am sure that in my previous life (if that existed) I was Spanish. The dark side of me, however, tells me that I lived in Mother Russia. I am an over thinker par excellence , in constant search of answers to all things that makes us human. What we do and, more importantly, why we do it. I hope you enjoy my rambles and would love to hear from you. If you like it here, please come back, comment and share. If not, let me not waste another second of your time. All I ask is that you respect my space, be constructive and leave negativity at the door. There is enough of that in this world we live in and yes, in my head too sometimes. Not everything here will be liked or agreed with. Some of it will be downright rude, crazy and straight forward. Not everyone will like me and what goes on in my head, but this is my life and my space. Enjoy the ride
