But in a sutuation, when the turn for vengeance against me comes, I would stand or sit still if I was wrong and deserve the punishment.
Contrary to that, when my turn comes I would forgive and forget those wee tiff. Because we can't live by vengeance or past regrets, rather we should seek happiness and honour in future.
At a later stage we can talk to the person and try to remove any misunderstanding he is having.
Any person who behaves in fighting and abusive manner in public loses his reputation to a great extent and other people also start becoming cautious with him and also avoid him. He is losing his reputation not we.
Controlling ones temper in such situation is the thing to be practiced and with time these sores are healed.
Knowledge is power.
But sometimes people will try to hurt you in public. In such situations my policy is to reserve anger. Wait for a day when you will get a best chance for you to teach him a lesson.
People say don't drop a stone on the dung it will flash on your face only. So best policy is to go away from the place, wait for a chance and make the other person to understand his mistake. If you abuse somebody in the public, he will also do the samething when the chance comes to him. So we should never abuse anybody in public.
If doing wrong thing is bad then excepting wrong thing is worse.
