You feel anger.
You have revenge fantasies.
You think of kicking that person’s ass.
You swear to yourself you will dish out some pain.
You say that it’s time to stop being a nice guy.
You’re a nice person.
You don’t do any of that.
You turned the other cheek.
You walk away from the fight.
You become the bigger person.
Because you know that it’s time. You have hit the time, the big times.
The time you actually said, “No. This hurts. It really fucking hurts.
But I do not want anyone to feel this pain. I wouldn’t even wish it even for my worst enemy.”
