Wounds Must Make Us Stronger..
" Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure.."
Tacitus c. A.D. 55-120
The thinker in me looked at it and relived many a moment from the past.. This hasn't really changed.. All said and done, we always seek revenge on anyone who inflicts an injury to us. In fact nothing leaves a greater injury on the soul then the insults which get inflicted by those in power. Men seeking revenge can wait for years and years to strike back and they do, ruthlessly so, because revenge is such a powerful emotion and often controls the injured.
Now there are some who are inflicted with deep wounds and they become very weak and feeble and are left with no capability to seek the pleasure of revenge. Such poor souls keep on taking revenge in their fantasies in the ways one can never dream of. And continue to suffer at the hands of those who love to serve their egos by inflicting injuries on them
And then with passage of time, some come back and stand on their feet stronger, a lot stronger. Their 'strength' doesn't let them become weak with the thoughts of revenge and they feel at peace and pray even for those who in the first place had inflicted those wounds... In fact those wounds turn out to be glowing milestones on the way to their own evolution..
Just a matter of perspective that!! Taken in a positive way, we may thank God for the wounds, because they make us stronger. If they won't happen, perhaps we would never ever think of becoming stronger..!!!! Yes, wounds must make us stronger and help us go forward so far ahead that those who had inflicted wounds should become invisible.
