What to Do When Others Hurt You

I recently had lunch with a young man I mentor. He described how he is wrestling with properly dealing with a group of peers who hurt him in the past. It seems he grew significantly faster than them in some areas, and the gap created tension. I shared with him four principles to follow when […]
