The Daily Tea: Turn the Other Cheek

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
Mahatma Gandhi, Spiritual Leader

Nothing grinds my gears more than a vengeful spirit. Forgiveness is a must. One can be smart and learn to keep from being burned without holding grudges. Pinned up anger only hurts you in the end.
Picture yourself getting stitches for a cut inflicted while slashing someone's tires. That's a literal representation of what revenge does to you and everyone around you. Learn to get past situations without feeling the need to get even. That revenge not only doesn't help the situation but it can cause harm in the end.
Turn the other cheek. Move on if you must. But refrain from intentionally harming another person.
