A BIG part of my Power Word for 2021: Balance, is learning to walk away from energy draining experiences.
Gotta be HONEST… this is HARD WORK for me! I’m an emotional person. I feel everything deeply. Discussions about Issues and values I hold dear to my heart are hard to walk away from.
I’m increasingly finding that people (especially on social media) want to drag me into arguments rather than honest discussion of differing opinions, ideologies, and values. These so-called “accepting people” would rather finger-point and yell and scream. This is a useless undertaking. These people aren’t interested in a discussion about the complexity of an issue. They simply want to “Take a Stand” and tell me how I am wrong or even a bad person if I disagree with their cause, ideology, or opinion.
This is a complete waste of time and energy. Yet the drama is VERY addicting.
I must work hard to resist the pull of these futile endeavors.
My mantra: “I am living my life in balance and with healthy boundaries.”
Nothing in today’s world is going to be better if i sacrifice my peace of mind.
Life is hard enough without inviting someone else’s “Crazy” into my consciousness.
