Many of the things that get to you are not worth the energy and the trouble that you invest in them. Do yourself a favor, and give yourself some distance from them.
Break the pattern of automatically reacting in the same way, time after time, to all the minor disturbances that come along. Sometimes, the best response is no response at all.
Seek to rise above the petty dramas that don’t do anyone any good. Keep in mind that where you put your awareness and your attention is where your life will go.
There are so many beautiful, positive outlets for your energy. Every day is full of possibilities for building, creating, loving, learning and growing.
Certainly there will always be difficulties in life that must be addressed and attended to. Yet there is no reason to make for yourself any needless difficulties of confrontations.
A sign of true strength is the willingness to completely let go of the things that don’t really matter. Choose to exercise that strength, and keep life focused in a positive, meaningful direction.
