Sometimes it is better to walk away. Integrity involves a commitment to ourselves. Sometimes partners are not what they seem...I can't judge another person intentions by my own.

Yes agreed.

Sometimes the intelligent thing is to walk away, while standing your ground is about ignorance, egocentrism, and arrogance. Intelligence is discernment. Wisdom/serenity is knowing the difference.

We know how to spell assume.

Intelligent questions direct you to be open to intelligent answers.

Everyday is a new adventure if we have learned from the past, otherwise its the same old adventure on a different day.

Thanks for reading and responding.
