“People who fight fire with fire end up with only the ashes of their own integrity.”
Has your integrity been tested?
It’s funny how people can do something wrong to you, or someone close to you, and as a way of protecting ourselves, or someone close, we tend to want to seek revenge. But we know if we sink to their level we will lose a piece of ourselves in the process. It will cause people to look at us with the side eye, thinking “I thought he/she was better than that.”
Wow! Last weekend I was a tested. I could’ve fought fire with fire, but that would’ve compromised everything that I am. And I refuse to let that happen. I was so shocked by this person’s actions that I wanted some get back, but I knew that route was not the road I wanted to take. Sometimes you have to be the bigger person and know that some people are just selfish and/or a**holes.
