Alternative when Feeling Ripped Off


However, because we have this amazing capacity to forget our own offenses, we tend to focus on the slights, offenses, and pain that others have caused us. If I was held accountable for all the things I didn’t get caught doing and all the things I have done to hurt other people (whether I realized it or not), I’d be in deep, deep trouble.

The next time we feel miffed, indignant, or surprised by injustice, remembering Oscar Wilde’s wisdom might help.


Alternative: Forgive injustices. We’ll need others to do the same for us.
