WHEN SOMEONE LIES TO YOU— it teaches you that things are not always as they seem. The truth is often far beneath the surface. Look through the masks people wear if you want to know their heart. And remove your own masks to let people know yours.
WHEN SOMEONE STEALS FROM YOU— it teaches you that nothing is forever. Always appreciate what you have, for you never know when you might lose it. And never, ever take your friends and family for granted because today is the only guarantee you have.”
WHEN SOMEONE INFLICTS AN INJURY UPON YOU— it teaches you that the human state is a fragile one. Protect and take care of your body as best you can, it’s the only thing you are sure to have forever.
WHEN SOMEONE MOCKS YOU— it teaches you that no two people are alike. When you encounter people who are different from you, don’t judge them by how they look or act; instead base your opinion on the contents of their heart.
WHEN SOMEONE HOLDS A GRUDGE AGAINST YOU— it teaches you that everyone makes mistakes. When you are wronged, the most virtuous thing you can do is forgive the offender without pretense. Forgiving those who have hurt us is the most difficult and courageous thing man can do.
WHEN A LOVED ONE IS UNFAITHFUL TO YOU— it teaches you that resisting temptation is man’s greatest challenge. Be vigilant in your existence against all temptation. By doing so you will be rewarded with an enduring sense of satisfaction far greater than the temporary pleasure by which you were tempted.
WHEN SOMEONE CHEATS ON YOU— it teaches you that greed is the root of all evil. Aspire to make your dreams come true, no matter how lofty they may be. Do not feel guilty about your success, but never let an obsession with achieving your goals lead you to engage in malevolent activities.
WHEN SOMEONE RIDICULES YOU— it teaches you that nobody is perfect. Accept people for their merits and be tolerant of their flaws. Do not ever reject someone for imperfections over which they have no control.
