When unjustly struck, bow back. It’s a simple, but effective equation: Respond in humility. Others will be rude to you, be offended by you, it’s wrong, they’re wrong, or maybe you’re wrong. Whoever is wrong, it is beneath no one to respond in humble kindness.
In theory, no one should be capable of being offended. Being offendable is a sure sign of weakness. When others show that weakness, you have the perfect opportunity to build them up. Show them that you are not above them. Be the the adult in the room; let your humility let others be adults too.
