If you feel the need to respond, have a calm approach. People purposely say and do things to get a rise out of you. They’re looking for a certain reaction. It’s a wise card to play by staying humble with a positive mindset. It’s a wise move also 2 minimize all verbage. Reason being is because you don’t want your language misconstrued by adversaries. Most importantly, when you feel someone or a group of people are allegedly conspiring against you, pray silently in your mind that you keep a peace of mind and stay humble throughout the process of being falsely accused. There is ONE who knows everything before it happens.
Life is a test to see what you’re made of. Everything you’re going through now is preparing you for Spiritual greatness. This too shall pass and the sun will shine. Hang in there and keep doing the transformation work.
