Have you ever listened to someone who was in an absolute rage at their boss, coworker or about how they were treated by someone in a faceless business. We could swear that they are going to have a heart attack if they don't calm down.
Have you watched a person become consumed by their hatred. Their life is defined by and supportive of that hatred. There is almost no room for anything else in their life.
What does all that rage, hate, and anger solve?
Do we somehow think that our fighting back will change the person that caused it. Do we think that by attacking or subtle sabotage will cause that person or organization to change.
People are who they are. Only they can change themselves. Granted if we have power over them then we can enforce our will but then we will have become one of them.
Sometimes it can be how we respond that can start the process of change in them. When we maintain our belief in ourselves and our actions reflect those beliefs then they cannot affect us. That is our choice and our strength.
