Hello beautiful Ladies!

Lets not grant anyone the ability to destroy our inner peace by insulting us,calling us names and making us to put up with primate-like behavior!!!!!
Enough is enough!
Keep calm and do not bow,so that you keep your head up high and keep your crown on.)))
Because we are much better than this!!!

This wonderful cautionary tale teaches how to respond to the insults and anger from
OTHERS:

One very old wise man was giving a lesson of wisdom and martial arts to a group of students .
Once upon a time,a brutal and boorish warrior came to his practice .
He was rude and often insulted the people around him.He really liked to provoke
people to quarrels and fights. This time, he entered as usual.
First, he cried a few offensive phrases to address teacher. And froze waiting for a response replica.But a wise man continued his lesson , without paying any attention to these phrases . Again this warrior threw insulting words. But the teacher was unmoved and did not pay any attention,continuing his lecture.
This was repeated a couple of times . Fighter got even more angry and left the room.After he disappeared from view , the students , all the while watching with curiosity for a while, asked:
- Master, why did not you call it a fight ? How could you tolerate his insults ?
The master replied :
- Imagine that someone brought you a gift,you do not like , and you do not want accept it.
Tell me- to whom the gift eventually belongs to?
- The giver - instantly replied students.
Similarly, in this situation- with anger and insults . Until,
yet you do not accept them, they belong to the person who brought them .

Love,hope and peace to all!!!
