We tend to learn our most important lessons during hardship. We learn who we can count on during our darkest hours, and who will use the opportunity to take advantage.
Let me tell you something.
Not only is it crucial for our own wellbeing to remove toxic people from our lives, but also absolutely essential that we set boundaries to protect ourselves from those with bad intentions we can’t remove. Thanks @emmanuelle.audouard 🌷 for reminding me about this.
When you can clearly distinguish between those with good or bad intentions, that is when the power is completely in your hands.
But the secret is this.
Instead of retaliating with anger, remain silent, observe from afar, remember the lesson, forgive, and walk away elegantly.
When someone hurts you, their actions define them, but always remember that you are defined by your reaction towards them.
This is my new way of life I discovered while reflecting deeply the last two weeks.
Do you also prefer resolving conflict peacefully?
I’d love to know how you deal with conflict and why it works for you.
Annnnd, go! 👇
