44. Temptation, Line 6

She comes to meet with her horns.

When inferior people challenge you directly, it is best to withdraw and stay detached. They’ll be unhappy. Too bad.

……………………………………………………………………………………..

What’s the Temptation here? To tell someone off, once and for all. It could be a friend, a relative, a co-worker, your boss . . .

The Yi advises: Don’t do it. Giving this person so much psychological energy and attention is a waste of your valuable personal resources. Use your energy instead to further your own pursuits.

When you stop giving them attention, they’ll be mad. Ignore them.
