My first thought was to jump to action & immediately take steps to show the world that I was there to save the day...this is always the way I react. I was madly typing a response to the words I felt had caused harm....then I paused....
This was not my fight. This had nothing to do with me. My friend who was directly involved stood up for herself & resolved the situation to her own satisfaction. Had I continued to shove my way into the exchange it is possible that I would have caused an unsatisfactory outcome for my friend.
Perhaps a small step into Asteya for me? The hurt I perceived was not rightfully mine. I stopped myself from stealing this experience from my friend & this hopefully offfered us both an opportunity to grow.
Namaste my friends,
