Winning the Battle But Losing The War

main image

Sometimes we are so proud of ourselves for doing things that hurt others.  We can curse people out, offend them, look down on them, disrespect them and then we walk away feeling good about ourselves.   We may have felt empowered at that moment but we are leaving people hurt and broken. So you walk around feeling like you have won.  You may have won the battle which is temporary, but you lost the war which is lifelong.   You have left behind life long casualties that may cause a child to grow up into an angry adult.  A person that is already broken now in a mental state may never recover from that. Yes, you won a lot of the battles but was it worth all the causalities win losing the war?  Be careful of your actions because they have consequences.
