    Which is worse?

    Hardening our heart to loss.

    Or lashing out to others?

    lashing out to others

    I chose this one because, when I harden my heart to loss, it does not affect others, only myself.

    I don't want to hurt anyone....me lashing out may hurt someone....

    Lashing out to others, definitely. I would rather hurt myself than hurt someone else. I can't confidently undo what I may have done to another person, but I can help myself if I am hurt by another person.

    I also think the two come hand-in-hand. If someone is hurt by loss, then their heart may harden. If their heart is hardened then they may hurt another unknowingly. They could have lost confidence in people leading to mistrust and other things. The two could almost be considered a cycle of being hurt and hurting others.

    Lashing out, if only because concerning the other option, no one can rightfully blame you for not expressing a whole lot of care. The implication of the term "lashing out" is sort of that they're not really trying to do it, so it's hard to really fault them for a moment of weakness.

    to me, they are almost one and the same, as those most hardened are the hardest to others.

    but i pick hardening my heart to loss.

    apathy is worse than hatred.

    Lashing out. On the few times I have done it, it was unintentional and completely misdirected. However, I've completely unloaded on people before for crossing a certain threshold. I don't consider that "lashing out". I'd far rather be apathetic than cause unintentional harm to someone.

    I don't think either option is that bad, but I chose lashing out as the worst.

    My Fe does not approve of lashing out towards others. Nor does my 9w1ness. :oP

    I'm too wise to answer. Wait, or was I too humble to answer? I can't remember.
