Fight or Flight
A moment where I fled when I should have fought is when I was younger. When I was younger I always used to get home from school and go onto my computer. This made my dad mad because I didn't get home and do my homework. So one day I got home from school and got onto my computer. I was watching YouTube when my dad told me to go do my homework which I responded: “I already did all my homework.” But my dad didn't believe me. So he took my computer and said I wasn't allowed on it for the rest of the day. I said that wasn't fair and said, “why don't you believe me.” He started to yell at me that I wasn't responsible and that I wasn't organized with my work. He also told me that I didn't have good grades and that I don't try. So after I got yelled at I walked away when really I should have fought. This is like when Odysseus went to the underworld and saw all the dead soldiers he let die. He must have felt like it was his fault and that he should have fought for them instead of leaving. I realized that I should have told him that I'm trying my best and that I'm responsible and I'm trying my best to get good trades. Even if I did fight I would get my word in it even if it lands me in more trouble. This is just one of the times I should have fought when I fled.
