A Promise

I made a promise to myself quite a few years ago that no matter what anybody does to me, I will never make them suffer as I have. Just recently I had somebody hurt me, and I became very bitter about the situation. I wanted so badly to get revenge and make him feel the way that I did. I remembered that promise, though, and instead I offered him my help. I put a smile on my face and told him it was okay. I've had to do the same for several other people in my life. I always feel so good when I give them this kind of response. They are never expecting it. I'm sure I wouldn't feel good if I ever tried to get revenge on any one of these people. It's just not right. I know what it's like to be hurting, and I would never wish that upon anybody.
