Will you tell me what "go around it" in the sentence below means?

“If you can't go around it, over it, or through it, you had better negotiate with it”

  • one of the meanings is to argue. So maybe, if you cannot argue, solve, win over something, you better negotiate and settle down.

In this context, it means to skip, to avoid or to bypass without tackling.



It means to move past something by means of going to one side or the other of it.
