This guy--he didn't ignore. http://guyism.com/humor/charles-ramsey-rescues-three-women-gives-greatest-interview-in-the-history-of-television.html

I choose to ignore things that could result in a fight, but I realize its minor in the scheme of things. I have learned to pick my battles essentially by ignoring. Ignoring can also be easy or hard depending on how you look at it. It's hard to ignore what makes you mad, but it's easy to ignore items perceived as difficult to tackle.

It's a funny thing about ignoring: Sometimes I'm proud of my ignoring, when I can turn the other cheek. And sometimes I'm ashamed of what I ignore, as when I hide my eyes to suffering or injustice--or even just fail to respond adequately to my kids calls (okay, whines) for help. Noticing takes energy, noticing is power. Ignoring can be too.
But wait... there's more!
