'For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ'. Jesus craves our freedom and knows it's only on the other side of letting go.
Gee, isn't that a bible verse? Treat others like you would want to be treated. Some people don't get it do they? Some people live by double standards. It's ok if they do something hurtful but if you do it back to them, you are the asshole.
