When do you turn the other cheek, and when do you take action?

I will turn the other cheek if:

  • I think the other person is right, and I'm wrong
  • it doesn't matter
  • I wish to forgive the other person
  • I want to keep the peace, and peace is the most important thing at the time
  • someone just wants a reaction out of me


I will take action if:  

  • the other person is threatening my well-being unjustly  
  • the other person is a bully of any description
  • the other person is making life difficult for everyone


What do you think?
