The older I get the more I realize not everything is as important as I once thought it was. For instance, the moment someone’s mask falls off right before your tear filled eyes, that moment that heartache begins to dissolve into bitterness. I realize now, that is the moment of acceptance, not the time to become entwined into their hate. That is the moment to acknowledge and forgive, that is the moment to celebrate the acknowledgment of their truth revealed.
The older I get, I understand that not all promises are kept. Yet, I feel much healthier and alive to just forgive and forget. With age comes wisdom and understanding. So, I realize not everything or everyone is as important as they would have you believe.
According to Google search, “stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body’s reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline.” To everyone that feels like a short burst champion, embrace and celebrate that inner strength!
The older I get, I no longer want to participate in emotional drama. I literally, visualize me handing it back to that person and walking away with the knowledge that I am not in control of them. However, I am in control of my feelings and emotions. I choose to embrace happiness, forgiveness and contentment. I am so thankful when truth is revealed. What began as a negative has entwined into a blissful positive. The older I get, the more I realize not everything or everyone is as important as they would have you believe. 🙂
