Rabbi Simon Jacobson

How obstinate are you? Do you ever refuse to compromise because of pride or principle, or perhaps due to insecurity and fear of being taken advantage of? Or is it the other way around: Perhaps you are tolerating too much because you fear confrontation and want to always please? When you experience challenge, do you know when to stand firm and when to yield? We are taught that "one should always be soft like a reed, and not be hard like a cedar." At the same time, some situations clearly require standing strong. How do we determine which is more appropriate? Determination and drive (netzach) are vital tools, but do you know when they need to be tempered with humility and flexibility (hod)?
