Staying silent during confrontation is not necessarily “Being the bigger person”. It has more to do with being a coward, true or false?
Could be either brave or cowardly. A strong and wise person avoids unnecessary conflict...but doesn't back down from necessary conflict. A coward backs down from all conflict. So for conflict that is unnecessary, it is hard to tell if a person is brave or cowardly.
False, brave and strong will not use violence and forgive. The more manly they are, the more refined they become.
