Forgive and forget.
When someone takes advantage of you or does you wrong in any manner, it is extremely tempting to try and get even. However, your hatred of them actually gives them power over you—over your sleep, your appetite, your blood pressure, your health, and your happiness. This hatred will eventually turn into resentment and the desire to take revenge. What you may not know is that having these feelings puts you at a higher risk for hypertension and heart trouble. In fact, if you have a weak heart, even one fit of anger could kill you!
- Recognize that no one can humiliate or disturb you unless you let them.
Fill your heart with love and forgiveness. Don’t try to get even with anyone—don’t waste even a minute thinking about the people you do not like.
