Rules of Engagement:
How do we respond when someone attacks us unfairly? During such stormy situations – staying calm and keeping our ‘cool’ is extremely difficult. So, before you respond, you can ask yourself these questions:
Will my response be from a place of kindness and compassion?
Will I also use words that would hurt or wound another?
Will I be speaking mainly to defend my wounded ego?
Will it add to or take away from the greater good?
Don’t escalate it:
The Master taught: “Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” Luke. 6:27
