We all face problems from time to time, especially in relationship with the others. And our reaction on such problems can be different. But the scientists say, there are only 3 types of it:

1) fight 2) passivity, and 3) flight.

1) Fight is the most natural and the healthiest reaction. The body and mind doesn’t stand psychosomatic damage. The gotten strike is transformed into a retaliatory response.
