Turn the other cheek.

I somehow thought that turning the other cheek only applies only for the slap but now I understand there’s more to it. You don’t have to be slapped in order to turn the other cheek. Sometimes you will be knocked down, you will be pushed, you will be looked with contempt, you will be gossipped, you will be judged, you will be hated simply for existing. And you will be expected to turn the other cheek.How?? Just keep being you and ignore them, I know it hurts but so does the slap…so don’t dwell on that because the hurt doesn’t last forever. You don’t need to get back at them, they don’t need to hear a piece of your mind, they don’t need a taste of their own medicine, , they don’t need to feel exactly how they made you feel…if you act like them, you will only be stooping to their level. So just let it go, focus on your life, on what makes you happy and ignore the distractions..and pray for them that come against you, the ones that hate to see your beautiful smile,, and don’t forget to keep smiling.

When you master the art of being unbothered by those that aren’t for you, , , nothing they will do will hurt you anymore..after all, the are doing what they do best and that has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them. You will just smile, turn the other way and keep moving.

By turning the other cheek you become invincible , you render all their attacks powerless, incapable of shaking you. Only the wise will understand, but a fool will be busy looking for an opportunity to strike back. A wise person will get an opportunity to get back at their enemies and they will choose mercy, they will choose kindness because they understand that revenge doesn’t empower but rather makes you the same as the ones you wouldn’t want to be like..and because being better means doing better otherwise we will all be the same, just that some get more opportunities to strike..so they appear worse.

Only the strong would be brave enough to turn the other cheek. It’s not for the weak. Only the humble would be smart enough to let it go, the arrogant wouldn’t understand. Only the wise would see the trap ahead and walk on the side, the fools would walk blindly into it and be trapped by their own folly.
