“In life you’ll meet a lot of jerks. If they hurt you, tell yourself that it’s because they’re stupid. That will help keep you from reacting to their cruelty. Because there is nothing worse than bitterness and vengeance… Always keep your dignity and be true to yourself.” – Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi
I really like that passage. It reminds me of one of my favorite books and I recommend it “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz.
The second agreement in the book is “Don’t Take Anything Personally”, it’s difficult at times but true. Save yourself from a lot of unnecessary aggravation today and everyday!
