When somebody starts a confrontation with you, however they do it, are you the type to walk away from it, or the type to stand and stick up for yourself? (BTW, I'm not judging on which way is better with that "stick up for yourself" I just couldn't come up with a better way to say it that didn't sound like I was judging.)

if its one of my inlaws, i dont even try anymore because then it becomes more confrontational than it needs to be.

but if i know i'm right then i try a little harder to inform the person i'm talking too.

I generally will express my opinion or thought on whatever the confrontation is about and let them have theirs and when we dont agree then I say thats fine and walk away or change the subject.

I suck at confrontation...I wont blow up at anyone but I wont go without expressing myself either.

It depends on the situation. If it's something I feel strongly about, yes, I will stand up for myself.. If it's something I'm not familiar with, I back away..

I have to FORCE myself to walk away if it goes on long enough because I don't walk away.

Ditto! I'm the type to argue my point. I need to work better on walking away before I get people annoyed or upset at me.

They have already annoyed and upset me at the point I have to force myself away.
