Are you looking for peace?
There are three commandments:

Do unto others what you want
them to do unto you.

But what if others do unto me what
I do not want them to do unto me?

Follow the second rule.
Thou shalt forgive.

But what if it becomes perpetual
or a threat to my existence?

Find an answer to this question.
Have I been my brother's keeper?

If your answer is negative
then go by the third rule.
Thou shalt be thy brother's keeper.

If your answer is affirmative
then I'm a shadow.
Better, not search for me.
