Motivational Quote - It is often better not to see an insult than to avenge it.

SparkPeople's Comments

Unfortunately, there are just some flat out negative people in the world. Everyone has run across someone, (maybe even a friend of yours), that always finds flaws in others. Sometimes, the person on the receiving end of an insult could be you. There are different ways to deal with this however. You can turn defensive, or send an insult right back at them, perhaps plot revenge for later on. Or, you could simply let it go. Why stress about some mean spirited comment someone said about you? Besides, they are only words. If it helps, try and think of a few positive aspects about yourself. Remember that was only one person’s opinion; there are others who do not feel the same way. The more and more you can forget about insults, the more relaxed you will be. So, as they say in New York, forget about it!

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Not really. But you can choose how to deal with the hurt. Hurting someone back won't make your hurt go away and may make you exactly what they think you are. Act like the person you want the world to know.

We need more kindness in this modern world. I agree to forget about an insult, however, if the insults keep coming on a regular basis---perhaps it it time to tell the "offender" you don't care to listen to their rudeness. Sometimes a "bully" needs to be told this!

"She may be a very good person, but there is just something about fat people that makes it impossible for me to like them." Said by a woman who professed to be a Christian, and it has been passed on to at least one daughter, also a devout Christian.....wwjd? "Judge not, lest ye shall also be judged."
