Throughout my life I had to face a lot of challenges that tested my character. The Baha’i Faith always helped me to stay true to my character and to my soul. When I had to make a decision that was difficult, I would think to myself - what would Abdu’l-Baha do? There is a Baha’i quote that says: ‘if someone gives you poison, offer them honey.’ A lot of the times when people hurt you, the majority of us have this feeling that we want to inflict that pain onto them as well, but personally when I remind myself of this quote I have this stronger feeling to show them that the answer isn’t pain. This doesn’t only uplift my soul but uplifts theirs.
