Your need to prove someone wrong is not a battle between you and the person you are trying to prove wrong. It is a battle within yourself."
The very nature of a debate or chat line is to discuss, to give your thoughts and views
The word "need" above seems to convey desperation
Are there issues so important that it requires a battle-like stance ?
What is the fear if others see things differently ?
What are some reasons for a "go to the wall stance ?"
A need to vent supressed emotions, to save or protect others from harm
or doubt or even guilt about past stands or lifestyles lived ?
