Avoidance avalanche

Some of the nicest people do it. Some of the most selfish people do it. Some of the smartest people do it. All of us at some point or other do it.

We avoid. We avoid difficult people, situations, decisions, etc. Sometimes it's okay to do it. Things or people or situations sometimes go away. But too often, they don't go away and they get worse, and...others take note of the situation and they respond to it in negative ways. It's an avalanche.

Better to respond in an imperfect manner and get so-so results than to avoid. At least you took action and the people involved, as well as the bystanders watching it all take place, know where you stand.
