Following are the ingredients of a happy and healthy life which you should learn and do:
I’m learning slowly that I do not have to hurt those who hurt me. I’m learning slowly that the ultimate sign of maturity may be to go away instead of becoming indifferent.
I’m slowly learning that the energy needed to respond to anything bad that happens to you, drains you and prevents you from seeing the other good things in life. I’m learning slowly that I’m not for everyone and that I will not be able to get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated, and that’s fine.
I learn slowly that it is time and energy waste to defeat someone and it brings nothing but emptiness.
I’m learning slowly that not reacting does not mean that I agree with the stuff, it means I want to outgrow it.
I choose to take the lesson and learn from it. I decide to be the bigger person. I choose my peace of mind because I really need it. I do not need drama anymore.
I do not need people who make me feel that I’m not good enough. I do not need quarrels and arguments and wrong connections. I learn slowly that sometimes saying nothing says everything.
I’m learning slowly that reacting to things that annoy me is giving someone else power over my feelings. You can’t control what others do, but you can control how you respond to it, how you handle it, how you perceive it, and how much you want to take personally.
I learn slowly that these situations usually say nothing about me and much about the other person.
I’m slowly learning that all these disappointments may be just to teach us how to love ourselves; because that’s the weapon and the shield we need against the people who are trying to destroy us.
They will save us when people try to destroy our trust or when they make us feel worthless.
I’m slowly learning that even if I react, it will not change anything, it will not suddenly make people love and respect me, it will not magically change their minds.
Sometimes it’s better to just leave things that way, let people go, not fight them, ask for explanations, not seek answers, and not expect people to understand you.
I’m slowly learning that if you do not focus on what is happening around you, you can live life better, centering it instead on what’s happening around you.
Work on yourself and your inner peace and you will realize that if you do not respond to every little thing that bothers you, it is the first ingredient in a happy and healthy life.
