Day 23 - Stick it To Them, Just Like you Want To - Daily Inspirational Verses from Real Life

Ever have your day ruined by someone else's words. You know what I mean; right after they said them, all they did was burn you and burn you.

Can't tell you how many times this has happened to me.  Normally, it doesn't even have to be real; it just seems real.  Let me give you an example.

First you have got to know that I have TBI, and one of the problems with TBI is loss of impulse control.  In other words, someone says something and it hurts, and instead of feeling that you should say something, then realize you should not, you just say it or do it.  Leads to awesome difficulty.  Always.

So, last night at 1:30am my phone buzzes.  Not sleeping is also one of the awesome benefits of TBI. So I reach for it, and remember as I do so, that I have the phone buzzer shut off for phone calls. I look, and sure enough, it is a Facebook message, not a phone call.  Weird.  Few people message me on facebook.  So I open it up.  

Some guy is ripping me for a post I made on facebook.  I assume it is from my high school who is drunk, because the political posts are the only ones I am contrary on, and only on my friends from High School.  Most times, I don't even believe one side or the other, I am just posting the logical side of the argument.  So I open the message, and some guy is ripping me for calling him shallow.  I had only the tiniest idea of who it was, but did not totally believe it, because this guy goes to my church, and I nearly never comment on the churches page, unless I am talking about my own weakness.

So I answer him with an apology for whatever I said that upset him.  He continues to go off, telling me that I demeaned him.  So now I ask him who he is, what I said, and when I said it, because if I am going to be evil, I want to know who I did it too.  He writes back, "What, do you have a short term memory issue?" 

Funny that.  Yes I do.  Another benefit of TBI.  So I tell him that, still not knowing who he is, or at least not thinking I do, and he goes off again, telling me that I am not smart enough to use facebook.

You see, that is another problem with TBI.  Everyone assumes that memory issues mean stupid.  This was just getting better and better.

After a few more insults, he forgives me for being an "Ass;" and tells me that I can't use the page anymore and goes to bed.

The whole time I was pretty calm.  I actually got back to sleep in about 10 minutes, where normally it would take me hours to even think about sleep. You see, I had just taught the answer to this type of problem, and the word of God was still in my head.  I knew the solution, and it made my day way better.

This is the solution: Matthew 7:12 - (NKJV): "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."
