Each day I can make the world a little bit better or a little bit worse. When you are treated poorly the temptation is there to give back what you receive. However you can alternatively rise and be the bigger person.
Marcus Aurelius was a Roman Emperor in around 160 A.D. He was the father of Commodus from the Gladiator movie, and unfortunately the apple fell far from the tree. Aurelius wrote a book called “Meditations” which was a diary of sorts. It ended up being copied and published, and we still have it today. Here’s a quote from it:
“When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can’t tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own – not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are unnatural.”
