Whenever you are being targeted by a bully, keep in mind that you are the better person and it is up to you to remain the better person. Don’t stoop to the bully’s level. Need proof? Try this quote:
“To be aware of a single shortcoming within oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in somebody else. Rather than speaking badly about people and in ways that will produce friction and unrest in their lives, we should practice purer perception of them, and when we speak of others, speak of their good qualities. If you find yourself slandering anybody, just fill your mouth with excrement. This will break you of the habit quickly enough” – His Holiness the Fourteenth Dali Lama
I believe what His Holiness is not-so-succinctly saying is – people who speak ill of others or slander others need to eat sh*t! I love it!
