“When the fight in you continues long after the battle there is a failure to acknowledge self, the triumphant and those left on the battlefield. It is important to know when to fight and when not but moreover, when it is over to assess the state of the opponent for the next step.”
Have you ever observed someone in battle, competition or argument and the other has acquiesced, waived the white flag or agreed to the terms? The person that continue to fight long after the battle ends struggles with the ability to let go or end the struggle. This trait to battle and/or engage as assertive may be warrior in an intelligent era. This warrior may have to learn the lessons of battle. A warrior when in battle may have to understand not how to fight but not how to stop at the end. Tensions and resistance can continue long after the battle is won, lost or neutralized. When a warrior continues to battle with no opponent in sight is an act of struggling against one’s self and their relations creating a rift inside of their own camp essentially producing damage to self and others. The completion of the war or battle has to be acknowledge for all concerned to move forward.
