17 Return evil for evil to no one. Take into consideration what is fine from the viewpoint of all men.
18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, be peaceable with all men.
19 Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but yield place to the wrath; for it is written: “‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay,’ says God.”
20 But “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by doing this you will heap fiery coals on his head.”
21 Do not let yourself be conquered by the evil, but keep conquering the evil with the good.
Romans 12: 17-21
Human imperfection is one of the biggest reasons why the world in general is as chaotic as it is but it is no excuse for anyone to be intentionally hurtful, mean or a bigot. We may have imperfections but we always have a choice.
Others can’t lower down their egos and are not willing to compromise for the sake of peace, while others simply love to bully and oppress others because it makes them feel powerful and in control. Some simply thrive in a negative environment and can’t survive a day without talking trash and criticizing other people.
True it is so suffocating and exhausting to hear negative things from people everyday but what can we do? It is how some people choose to live and it is solely in our hands if we want to be affected by it or if we want to be encouraged by it. . . encouraged to do the exact opposite and say only the positive things we see in others. By doing that, we could help in our own small way to promote peace and spread positive thoughts to everyone.
We could think of 2 ways we could be remembered:
-Oh yes, she is that woman who keeps on criticizing everyone!
-Oh yes, she is that woman who always has something good to say about others.
We are free to choose.
spread love and kindness or spread hatred
xxPeace to everyone!xx
