Salt In The Wound

I grow increasingly exasperated with people whose approach to solving an issue is adding more of the same offense to the situation.  ‘You offend us, so we offend you.’  This makes as much sense as adding more salt to food that is already too salty, treating a brain injury with a hammer’s blow, or denying children who are starving another day’s meal.  It’s ridiculous.

EVERY PERSON IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OR HER OWN BEHAVIOR.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FIGHT THAT IS NOT BY INVITATION.

In sum, get control over yourself before you start telling others how to behave.
