I've slowly learnt that I don't have to react to everything that bothers me...
The energy it takes to react drains you and stops you from seeing the good things in life. I'm not gonna be everyone's cuppa tea; I won't get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated "that's okay with me"...
I've learnt that trying to "win" anyone
Is just a waste of time and energy and it fills you with nothing but emptiness !!!
I've learnt that not reacting doesn't mean I'm okay with things; it means I'm choosing to rise above it . I'm choosing to take the lesson it has served and learn from it, im choosing to be the bigger person. I'm choosing my peace of mind because that's truly what I need...I don't need more drama, I don't need people making me feel like I'm not good enough . I'm don't need fights, arguments and fake connections . I've learnt that sometimes not saying anything at all says everything !!!
Reacting to things that upsets you gives someone else power over your emotions...you can't control what others do but you can control how you respond and how you handle it; I've learnt that most of the time these situations say nothing about you and a lot about the other person. It's best to just let things be ,let people go, don't fight for closure, don't ask for explanations, don't chase answers and dont expect people to understand where you're coming from !!!
Life is better lived when you don't centre it on what's happening around you and centre it on what's happening inside you inside. Work on yourself and your inner peace and you'll come to realize that not reacting to every little thing that bothers you is the first ingredient to living a happy and healthy life !!!
