Everybody wants to play nice…I know I do… and while that is true for the most part, the reality is we don’t.
It is not that we mean to stir the pot, but let’s face it… Shit happens. Emotions get in the way, old wounds get called to the surface, and the rug gets pulled out, and all hell can break loose.
We are all wounded, somewhere, from something, or someone…
No exceptions; our feelings are sticky… and words, actions, and responses stick.
So what do we do? Well, we can engage and be seen as the bad guy, or we can stuff it and see ourselves as the BIGGER person, uh huh, we all know how that goes down. Keeping it real has its price, no doubt, but in the long run, we will be better for being true to ourselves.
When we Purposely keep the peace, so we don’t rock the boat and/or shake up the status quo, we can end up having an internal war within, and there is a huge price to pay for continually backing down. Backing down can and does cause resentment(s), and that my friends… is a fertile breeding ground for dis~ease.
Conscious compromise is great and has its place, but habitually overriding the situation and suffering is optional. Stand in YOUR Truth with self-compassion, forgive yourself, for you have done nothing wrong. Life is messy!
There comes a time when you have to show up for yourself.
There comes a time when you stand up for yourself.
There comes a time when you need to shake
AT the end of the day it is you and you.
“If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart…”
