In life one sadly comes across people who wish to break down or criticise your every move.
Stay strong and true to yourself.
Listen to what is said to you and keep what you can learn from and further more
let unnecessary or untrue accusations blow away in the wind.
It is natural to want to defend yourself by fighting back
one is drawn into stooping to a level that is naturally not your nature.
As you would say Richard
"It's just not WUTH it !!! "
"Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath"
