Don't be baited! Yep...word to the wise! Here's how it is. Here's how it was. Here's how it will be. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Even if people would call your integrity into question...DON'T be baited into drama.
We make choices. We bear consequences. We move on.
It ain't a shame issue. It's not vindictive. It just is what it is. End of story.
Don't get baited into any more than that.
And...don't let the insult mean anything. It's "grown up" time.
