I Won't "Turn the Other Cheek"

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    I Never Forget.

    It's not that I won't, it's that I CAN'T. When I am offended or angered by someone, I will remember it forever until I have vengence. Most of the time, I can go without vengence though. But, if I do that, I will always remember the way the person treated me or someone I care...

    Don't Slap Me Unless You Really Really Mean It !

    Because I don't really give a **** what jesus ment. (I did not capitolize his name becasue TO ME he is no better than any one else that ever lived.)  He told this deciples to go sell what they had to buy swords and then found out that Peter already had one hidden and told...
