In your own life would you say you have, or have not, mostly chosen your battles wisely?

" Choose your battles wisely" means to be selective of the problems, arguments, and confrontations that you get involved in. Instead of fighting every problem, you save your time only for the things that matter. This means fighting the most important battles and letting go of the rest. Everything in life has consequences, only choose that which is most important for you.

Because if you don’t you’re more likely to lose. Victory is never guaranteed, you should take caution before fighting, whether literally or metaphorically.

In my own life it has sort of been an even split, it has been only in learning/experiences that I now can chose more carefully, then in my younger years.

Yes ma'am, and in the end you expend so much energy, and for what ? Make sure it's worth the battle.

Recently and amidst a family battle of sorts, I have chosen to not get involved. That decision
had caused rift with the family member who wants me involved in the battle. I will say this, it
is not easy, not to chose sides at times, BUT I have made my choice.

I would never ever take sides in family rifts.

If you can't speak well of someone. Then don't speak at all.
A hard one to call. But well worth the effort.

I go back to my uncles old saying "Some are just not worth the effort to mess with" per post topic.

I agree with senile.
I would go further and say that any kind of battle should be avoided - i would always try to find an alternative solution.
