We live in a world where people are quick to retaliate whenever someone offends them or wrongs them. When you are on the receiving end of such behavior, should you retaliate? My answer to that is No. Should you fret or worry over the offender? My answer to that is also No.
I feel that it’s important for me to share this on all my blogs because I don’t want any of my subscribers or followers to stoop to such a low level. I often give experiences of my past when I allowed my violent temper to get the best of me and I’m ashamed by how I used to act. I haven’t behaved in such an embarrassing way for over ten years and that makes me feel awesome!
I’ve had people lie on me and some tried to get me fired for something I didn’t do. At one point in time, I almost left this particular job where this was going on. Why did I stay? Because of the advice of my parents.
My parents told me not to “run” so to speak, but to keep on living my life right. In time, they assured me that some of those very same people who tried to hurt me or hold me back will soon be gone themselves. Not only that, I’ll be blessed in other ways. The catch? I had to stay to see it come to pass.
Well, I’m here to tell you my parents were absolutely right. Some of those very same people were forced to move on, others have been “catching it” in other ways (including some of their minions) and as for me, I’m blossoming with my writing and other potential opportunities in the works.
If you ever find yourself in a position where you are wronged, don’t retaliate, don’t worry and don’t you fret. Time has its own way of handling such things. You just have to do your part by continuing to do the right thing. 😉
Until next time…
