An eye for an eye, and the whole world would be blind.
How many times have we tried to avenge the wrongs that were done to us? We always follow that famous line, “An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth.” But is it really right? If we do so, are we really easing the pain?
Kahlil Gibran is one of my personal heroes. I admire him. I admire the way he thinks, and I completely agree with this quote. I think that he has it spot on. If we seek revenge everytime we get hurt, then the whole world would be hurting right now.
We should really think hard before we do anything. In life, there will always be people who hurt us. There will always be those assholes who treat us like worthless junk. There will always be men who act like jerks and break our hearts. There will always be friends who are more envious than supportive.
In spite of all that, our purpose on this earth does not change. We are here to make the world a better place. That should be the only thing that matters. People will always be people, whether they are here to hurt or heal. But OUR own lives should be spent in healing or helping others.
Think about it. If we have to get even for everytime that we are aggreviated, then twe would all be hurting at least one person that we know. This whole world would be blind, and there’s no such fun living in a world where people could not see anything. We have such a beautiful world. There are so many other things to focus on other than the hurt. Life is too short. Why don’t we live it?
