Life can be one amazing experience, but it doesn’t come with a manual. Over the years you simply learn what is best for yourself. And it can often happen to be into a certain state of mind where you realize most things and how you should react to them.
You will slowly learn that the energy it takes to react to something wrong can drain you and at the same time prevent you from seeing the good things that happen in life. Over time you will learn that no matter how hard you try you won’t be everyone’s cup of tea.
Over time you will realize that you won’t get the needed amount of respect from everyone, and you will be fine with that.
Slowly you will learn that by trying hard to win everyone over you are just wasting your energy and time and that in turn only makes you feel empty and alone.
Slowly you will learn that not reacting doesn’t necessarily mean that you agree with how things are, it merely means that you are choosing to rise about the issues. It says that you wish to learn from the lesson.
By not reacting you are the bigger person, you are choosing your peace of mind over saying something and being right. You know that you don’t need people who make you feel worthless and you don’t need drama.
You realize that there is no point in having fake connections, arguments or fights. By not saying anything at all you are actually saying everything.
After some time you will slowly learn that reacting to certain things which upset you only give power over your emotions to someone else.
Yes, the truth is that you don’t have the power to control what other people will do. But do you know what power you have? You can manage the way you will respond, the way you will perceive and handle it and also how much of it you will take personally.
You will learn that most of the time, these specific situations say more about the other person than yourself. Over time you will learn that all of these disappointments are there to teach you how to love yourself at the end of the day.
Because self-love can serve as a shield and armor against those people, who try to bring you down. Your self-love can save you when someone else will try to shake your confidence and make you feel worthless.
Eventually, over time, you will learn that even if you react, sometimes it won’t change things. If you react, people won’t suddenly respect and love you. If you react, you won’t change their minds and who they are.
Slowly you will learn that it is better to let things and people go. Sometimes it would be better not to search for explanations, reasons, answers, and closure. Not all people are going to understand where you are coming from.
You will see that life is better lived when you don’t focus on the things that happen around you, but you focus on the things that happen inside you.
Instead of spending your energy on negative people, spend your energy to work on your inner peace and yourself.
Try to do this, and soon you will realize that not reacting to every single thing which bothers you is actually the first step towards living a healthy and happy life.
You only live once, live it as you prefer, and no, never under any conditions spend it reacting to every single thing that happens around you.
Avoid this, and you will be free. And you will undoubtedly conclude that freedom never felt better.
