Lacking strength.

Within certain parameters (and only within those parameters) it seems a good idea to me to turn-the-other-cheek, as in the words of Jesus "If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also (that is--offer him the other cheek to be kissed)"

Doing this takes a certain strength, which I find I am lacking today. Tomorrow I shall try again.


  1. i love you darling one
    thank you for being wonderful you.
    your new blog is wonderful and i like it a lot!

  2. How about something in between the two - like, walking away instead of retaliating? In many situations that seems more reasonable to me than turning the other cheek (which means, giving the other person the opportunity to keep hurting you)

  3. I'm with Helen. Find a way that doesn't involve retaliating but neither does it allow the other to use you as a doormat.
