22 Jun Excerpt 2: Life, Lessons… My Path to Happiness by Abisola Biya
“There is the saying “An honest adversary is always better than a friend who lies.”
Paying more attention to people’s actions rather than what they say would show you the truth. Do not allow anyone to deceive you more than once. The first time is understandable. The second time, not so much.
Believing in the “an eye for an eye” ideology would not be to your own advantage so it is not worth it.
When you entertain hate, you dig two graves—one for yourself and the other for your object of hate.
There is a link between hate and the sense of entitlement and in my opinion people who hate tend to strongly believe they are owed something.
Moving on, succeeding and being the complete opposite of who hurt you is the best revenge.“
