  • Recently, in the company of a good friend I noticed that when we are in a crowd that person tends to mock whatever I say just to get a laugh.

    At first I just ignored it but now the more I think about it the crosser I get ....

    I don't think anyone has the right to mock or belittle another person just to make themselves come across as "witty".

    "it is better to be kind than right" is what keeps springing to mind (something I picked up in one of my spiritual books) but it is so difficult at times to put into practice but I am going to persevere.

    As much as it challenges me, in this instance I am going to be the bigger person and let the comments go over my head
