I agree, too, and I love the first response. In addition to what "user" has to say, I would like to add that in order to live with other people in this world, one must pick and choose what to make an issue of, since no one can possibly get his or her way all the time and co-exist with others. I have a friend who always asked,"Is the hill I want to die on?" What she was doing by asking that question was putting into perspective the importance of the battles she wanted to engage in. In her particular case, she was speaking of parenting, which is another good example of a need for "submission" in some situations. Does it really matter what kind of music our children listen to or how they dress? There is a need for give and take in every human interaction.
