Hold Your Peace

In life you have to work diligently at maintaining your peace. One way to accomplish this is by not allowing yourself to get caught up in a war of words with others. Be willing to opt out of minor disputes and arguments over differences of opinions. Don’t allow your conversations to escalate into heated arguments. In reality no one can clearly hear one another when each person’s emotions have overtaken the interaction. When you see your peace being disturbed when speaking with someone, take a moment and revisit it when both or all parties are willing to truly understand one another and respond in a constructive manner. Be the bigger person no matter how tempting it may be to state your claim. If someone is not ready to receive it, it won’t matter anyway. Choose your battles wisely. Walk in peace.
