Smooth Ways To Overlook An Insult

Proverbs 12:16 says a wise person overlooks an insult, but a fool immediately gets annoyed. Here are five ways to bring this verse to life in your own life and rise above those who try to belittle you.
 
Don’t Take Offense

When you take offense, it builds “a fence” around your heart and blocks the power of God from freely flowing. Even if someone dishes it to you, the choice is yours whether or not to take it.

Trade Places

Put yourself in their shoes. Maybe they are dealing with family stress or work pressure. Try to consider their unique situation and know that the perception is not always reality.

Benefit Of Doubt

Show mercy by not letting the insult diminish how you feel about the person. Besides, one day we will all need someone to show us the same kindness.

Humor Yourself
Laugh it off and keep it moving. This is a great way to take control of the situation and prevent yourself from harboring bitterness and anger. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
Love Again
Press the reset button in your heart and begin again. Quickly forgive and move on. Don’t let an immature moment ruin the relationship. If the same attitude reoccurs, create some distance and love from far away.
