The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the raven. It sits on the eagle’s back and bites its neck. However, the eagle doesn’t respond or fight with the raven. It does not spend time or energy with the raven. It just opens its wings and begins to fly higher in the sky. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the raven to breathe and the raven eventually falls due to lack of oxygen.
Not all battles you need to respond to. Not all arguments or critics you need to respond to or answer back. Just lift up a standard, they’ll fall off! Stop wasting time with the ‘ravens’. Just take them to your height and they’ll fade away. The enemy may sit on your back and bite your neck…
But remember, “The race is not for the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor the bread to the wise, nor riches to men of skill, but time and chances happen to them all”
May you soar to a height where it’ll be difficult for the enemies to peck on you!—Adapted
