    I don't mean any response that includes violence, I am referring to someone screwing you over in ways that have impacted your life permanently. The response, if any, would be non-violent but would attempt to achieve reparations according to the poll choice you select.

    Cheers

    I've known many people who feel that they have been wronged by other people. By Parents, by friends, by siblings, by business partners you name it. The ones that let it go seem happier than the ones that don't.

    Think of this "wronged" similar to what someone would have experienced at the hands of the Stasi in the former East Germany, or the KGB in the former Russia. The decide which response works best for you.

    You can recover from all kinds of problems, as long as you are free. If not free...you have to decide how to respond to that person who has shackled you.

    None of the above.
    1. Pick up the pieces that I can and set about restoring my life to what I want it to be.
    2. Pursue legal recourse as best I can, if there is any that to be had and that I am able to obtain.

    I fought back and went to INS. But then they scrunched up and blamed Ronald Reagan and his weird amnesty back in the 80's. I live in Colorado, we (not me) elected a Hispanic (Pena) and we suddenly had this HUGEMONGUS influx of illegal Mexican illegal aliens that resulted in Denver become a sanctuary city. What a coincidence. And We have a HUGE change in Demographics. All to suit wealthy realtors, layers and contractors and to the harm of local Coloradans and the poor. I see them living in tents along the the Platte river path and begging for money .But we want to help poor illegal mexicans that came here?

    What does the Bible say about this? The KGB took the wives and husbands and children of many countries to gulags, also redrew the map of Europe.

    The bible says that moving a border is theft. Which OP option do you choose if your wife is now at the other side of the border that you are not allowed to cross?

    Ok. Well I don't of any, but I've heard of people wrongly imprisoned who forgive their accusers. I've heard of people who had loved ones murdered and they forgave the murderer. There is always that choice one can make for themselves.

    Someone destroys your life...destroy is a huge thing. Not makes your day bad or ruins your morning or even ruins a few years of your life. "Destroy" is permanent. Pay back must be delivered for that king of destruction.
