We live in a world that understands the word “respect” by its very definition, but few seem to apply it with any sincerity or regularity.
This disrespectful nature often leads more considerate individuals to establish and harbor battles that wind up festering inside of them – causing endless frustration and even anxiety.
Seeking retaliation is a natural reaction that typically creeps up at one point or another. But reducing yourself down to that level does little to alleviate the problem or end the battle lines you’ve already drawn in your head.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is put everything in priority and free yourself of the burden you’ve placed on yourself – sometimes unnecessarily. While we can’t change those around us, we can change ourselves and our circumstances to provide us with a more meaningful life.
“Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn’t measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It’s not winning battles that makes you happy, but it’s how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.” – C. JoyBell C.
There will always be people in society who care only about themselves – and no amount of reasoning will change their selfish behaviors.
We have to know then when it’s time to simply “let the rest go”.
