Some things in life are worth fighting for; others, less so; and still others, of waning reactive significance such that the minimal relevancy to one’s life should make it evident that walking away from the issue is the wiser course of action.
Of course, there are those who never make a discretionary judgment as to the priorities of expending time and energy in the fight itself, but who — because it is being opposed — must by reactive necessity fight the fight. Perhaps the person was a schoolyard bully; or, in childhood, he or she had to always “prove something” because of some trauma of inadequacy.
Then, there are the total opposites — those who give up and scurry away at the first sign of conflict or contention. All of us have those in our families — when a “spirited” discussion begins to develop, the niece who slinks away or the uncle who turns suddenly very quiet, or the aunt who interjects with, “Let’s keep out voices down; we can all hold our own opinions.”
But some things are clearly worth fighting for — like a benefit which was promised when we first entered employment. Federal Disability Retirement is one such issue worth fighting for. Contact an attorney who specializes in FERS Disability Retirement, and begin the process of fighting for something worth fighting for.
