Being Wronged

It is a hard place to be. When someone wrongs you, betrays you, slanders you, hurts you, back stabs you, the list goes on & on, it flat out hurts. Its hurts even more when that person is in a looked up to position, a friend, or a family member, and when someone admitingly wrongs you & simply tells you, they'd do it again & do the same behavior to others as well. OUCH!

Naturally this can cause some frustration to rise up at minimum. However Proverbs 12:16 states "A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted." I believe in Gods word 110% even the things that sting & are hard to walk out. So if someone wrongs you, if you'd like to be the wise person, stay calm. I promise the fool will be known very quickly by their quick temper which is typically accompanied by arrogance.

2 wrongs never make a right. This has been very challenging for me to learn. However from someone who always sought for revenge, or getting even i can tell you it always left me feeling worse. Having an experience recently where I was calm, followed Gods word & didn't seek revenge or getting even; I can attest to you that it feels SO MUCH BETTER! Our natural instinct is to get back at people & make them hurt like they hurt us, our natural instinct is SIN! But what good is spreading hurt? Be apart of the solution, not problem.

Lets work hard together & choose to bite our tongues, forgive quickly, not try to get even with everyone. Life will be so much happier & more fulfilled, trust me, if i can do can you <3
