be true

Be true to who you are.   Don’t let the actions of others, however hurtful they may be influence the way you treat them.  An eye for an eye makes the world go blind.   People are not always kind, patient, and loving.  I know this because I am one of those who needs reminding.  I sat this morning and pondered retaliation.  How nice it might feel to inflict pain out of my own pain.  To put off onto someone what they hurriedly put onto me.  But then I remember who and what I am.  And I remembered the wise words of someone most dear, “To thine own self be true.”  William Shakespere is the original author but I have a friend who has done the saying great justice.  No matter what someone says or does I still have to be me.  Even if it hurts and even if I don’t feel like it, I have to rise to the occasion act as unto my higher power.  Part of being true is admitting that it hurts, and acknowledging the truth about how you feel, pretending you’re o.k. when you’re really not is just another form of dishonesty.  So here it is, I said it:  She hurt my feelings.

Now what am I going to do about it.
