Doing nothing when attacked is equal to suicide (c)
I’ve looked through my recent entries and found the one on softness. The main idea there is to find balance between being soft and tough in order to stay untouched both in physical and psychological aspect. I read it and it sounded like a great deal to me… and since the time I wrote it I am not sure I’ve moved forward a lot in terms of finding the balance.
It’s easy to see. Being quite easy- and out-going, I joke and laugh and talk about everything in the world with the people I enjoy my time with. However, for some reason in different life periods I would always get someone around who will keep finding my weak spots and poking them at will or even deliberately – just to see my reaction. As I have a wide spectre of emotional feedbacks I can only imagine how fun it is to help me get beside myself. I must admit since the start of my Wing Chun kung fu practice it's happening less and less brightly but still there's a great deal to improve.
