I don’t know if you have ever had this experience:

Even though you have not offended the other person, you are always being ridiculed and humiliated for no reason;

Even though I have done my best, I am still being picked on by others;

Even though he was promoted based on his own abilities, he was still criticized behind his back.

Faced with other people’s unprovoked malice, we have also rushed to reason.

Both sides used sharp words and exchanged harsh words. As a result, instead of convincing each other, they became angry.

When I was young and full of energy, I only knew how to fight back by turning against me. As I grew older and matured, I suddenly realized:

Fighting evil with evil will only lead to greater evil.

The most skillful way to fight back against someone is to:

Don’t argue, ignore, and continue to improve yourself.

William McAdoo, the U.S. Treasury Secretary in the early 20th century, once said:

You cannot defeat ignorant people through debate.
