Do not let the wounds and pain of others drag you onto a path that is not yours.
It may seem natural to be swept away by those waves, to follow their current, but sooner or later you will realize that it is not worth it, that this is not who you are.
When you ask yourself, “Everyone else is doing it, why shouldn’t I?” reflect on the person you want to be. Because if you have been wronged and you think that now you have every right to repay them in kind, it means that soon someone else will feel the same way as you, and the world will be a less welcoming place, a less bright place.
Do not do as others do, instead give as much love as the pain you have received.
A hug of hope.
