I believe in practicing the golden rule: do unto others as I would like done unto me. We should treat others with respect and dignity. We shouldn’t be rude to others and say nasty things.
But…at the same time, I believe in doing unto others what they do unto me. I don’t believe that I should let someone abuse me. Never! If someone makes rude remarks, is unkind to me, treats me like dirt, then the golden rule gets tossed out the window. Why should I put with someone’s abuse?
I lived with my sister for a while, after my gang stalking started. At the beginning, I didn’t know my sister knew about what was happening to me and was taking part in the gang stalking. And then I found out the truth. I did nothing. I didn’t try to get even. I didn’t retaliate. And this went on for a while. I wouldn’t retaliate because she is my sister. She seemed to have no trouble, though, harassing me and using a weapon against me. Finally, I decided, she is my sister, but she was hurting me and I was not going to take it anymore. So I began to resort to doing to her what she did to me. She didn’t like it one bit. She never said anything, but I could see it on her face. I tossed the golden rule out the window. I shouldn’t have to take anyone’s abuse, not even my sister’s.
I know there are people who believe that we should not retaliate. They believe that God will take care of getting even for us. Sometimes God is too busy, and he would like us to handle things ourselves. It might be years before God gets around to helping us. He’s too busy helping those who won’t help themselves.
