‘They must be hurt. Revisting the unhealed scars of their past. Reminded of all that, they are not, or can be. Mocked by their brutal fears, yet again. Chided by their brutally insensitive insecurities. Pinched by their yawning limitations. Forgive them. Bless those who curse you. After all, they need that blessing more than anyone else.’ That is what I tell myself, everytime I witness a cruel act. I have promised myself, that I will choose only this response. That keeps me at peace. Always.
