Life Lesson #7: Kill them with Kindness
Like many people, you may want revenge. That is perfectly understandable, but it's about the worst thing you can do for yourself. Karma will bite you in the butt faster than any ferocious animal. I have never really been the type of person who has tried to get revenge on someone, but there have been times when I have definitely wanted to.
The thing is, when somebody is bothering you, you want to be the bigger person. It may not always be easy, but in the long run you will feel very proud that you stuck it out. I pride myself in not being a quitter, so don't just give up on yourself.
Maybe they will learn from your kindness, and maybe they won't. I'm not going to lie to you. Just because you are nice to people, does not mean they will all of a sudden see the light and change their ways. However, there is a fraction of a chance they will. You never know how people will respond. Even if the change is not immediate, they may remember in years to come that you were nice to them. They may feel undeserving, but they will remember it nevertheless.
