The sooner we realize this, the better it is. I agree-sometimes, it's not feasible or sensible to stand up for something, even if we feel the opposite person is wrong- it might be due to etiquette or respect. But, not standing up and speaking your mind at all, leads people to think that you're a weakling. That you've no thoughts of your own, that you always tend to go the 'Bhed Chaal'- like a herd of sheep- one leads, the rest follow.
Simple thought, great meaning!!What's your interpretation, people?
