Show respect even to people who dont deserve it, not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours -from Lifehacker, quoting Dave Willis. I really need to remember this because I think I show weakness when I do this, but I shouldn't.
"When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness." Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now.
