fight -- to make (one's way) by struggle or striving
I do it every day, and you probably do as well. Sometimes just surviving requires us to fight.
I don't like confrontation, so I don't like to think of myself as being in a fight. The flip side of that is the power and control that "fight" implies. If I am fighting for myself that can be a very good thing.
It makes me thing of Ephesians 4:26 (NRSV) -- Be angry but do not sin.
Paul doesn't say "don't be angry". He says be angry but don't sin.
Anger, confrontation, fight -- words I've had to work on loving and appreciating. They are not bad things if used well.
