I am always learning, always growing in peace. In any difficult situation, in any sort of conflict with another, I am reminded of this bumper sticker I have: There is no way to peace, peace is the way. Sometimes, I wish that little sticker would just hover above the person's head who I am struggling to make peace with, to remind me of this way of being! It's not always easy to be coolheaded in the face of conflict, is it? But, when you're out there just living life, just doing your thing, there are people you will piss off at some point, and they will make sure you know just how much you have affronted them, and quite possibly not in the most peaceful of ways.
And usually, in our modern day culture, the common response to such a confrontation is to think that somehow they are the a**hole for this or that or the other thing, and that you somehow feel justified in feeling angry right back at them. Isn't that amazing? But from my own experience of this phenomenon, and in observing it in others, I have not seen this kind of thought process (or the words or actions taken thereof) lead to peace.
