I strive to be kind even when others are not so kind to me. I get angry but work diligently to think good thoughts for it is NOT my desire to act as others do, viciously tearing one another down. Although, I must admit, I am just as much capable of destructive behaviors and violence as the next person.
However, just because I yearn to do right does not mean my thoughts always reflect what I desire in my heart…but still everyday I choose! Choosing is also exploring two sides of self. My heart speaks and seeks life, love and peace but my mind says kill…it says “its okay to take revenge” although I know the word specifically tells me that vengeance belongs to God.
