Some days are harder than others. Some days bitting our tongue isn't an option. So, we release. Gracefully, or not.. we let go. But how do you feel after? Do you feel better? Do you feel worse? Do you ever reflect on those feelings, wonder why you feel the way that you do?
You are the sole provider of your mind. What you feel is up to you. You can choose to let another energy take over, or you can learn how to be in charge of your own and limit what you allow to flow into your space.
Don't feel bad for making a conscious effort to not let something or someone enter into your space without your permission. I know, it is not easy. To hold your own energy without another's interfering.. But it is essential to practice if you want to take control of your emotions, of your life.
Letting go is a beautiful thing. It allows for new beginnings.
If you don't let go, the weight will become too heavy to bare. You will then lash out and cause even more harm to yourself than you realize.
Yes. I am firm believer in speaking my mind and honesty. But I also believe in the line, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". Trust me, I am not perfect. I have a very difficult time following my own advice. Especially when I'm dealing with a painfully rude and ignorant individual. Yet, I still try because I know I am also hurting myself if I am trying to hurt another. That is why it is important to choose your company and your words wisely. You don't have to be friends with everyone, remember that.
For a peaceful happy mind, quality eclipses quantity.
