Lately I have been on this journey of just protecting my peace. I won’t even react to things that used to mess me up. It’s quite hard work to switch off from default settings. On a daily basis I used to say what I wanted to say to prove a point, but these days I allow others to have their way and win an argument because I would rather preserve the relationship and most importantly protect my peace.
It is a powerful thing to not react to every plot of the enemy because so many of us stay on the defense. There is rarely a person who does not take offense when they are cornered. I have learned when you address a behavior of someone that has a negative impact on you, they quickly pull the rug out from under your feet and deflect, but you know what is the best part, standing your ground, speaking your truth and holding them accountable for their behavior.
Accountability always seems like an attack to someone who is not ready to face their truth… But that should never stop you and I from enforcing boundaries and speaking our truth. I protect my peace and guard my heart because one thing that I have learned this year is that, how people react towards me is a reflection of them and not me and how I respond is a reflection of me.
Take your power back, protect your peace and if someone threatens your peace, walk away. You deserve to be calm, cool and collected and not at war.
All my love,
