Trust that somebody will make it right.
It means that there will always be a way.

Sometimes it proves the highest understanding not to understand.
Avoid looking forward or backward and try to keep looking upward.
She Is A Tree Of Life ..
Happy is the man who finds wisdom,
And the man who gets understanding.
For the gain from it is better than gain from silver
And its profit better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels,
And nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand.
In her left hand are riches and honour.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her.
Those who hold her fast are called happy.
( Solomon, Proverbs )

Alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.

But it does let you dance all over them.
