The people you surround yourself with in your life should be a source of reducing stress, not causing more of it. Choose to walk away from anything or anyone who robs you of your joy. Drama doesn’t just so happen to walk into your life. Either you create it, invite it, or associate with it. Oftentimes, people who have no life will try to start drama in yours. Know that difficulty is inevitable in our lives, but drama is a choice.
Some of our best decisions are often what we choose not to get involved in. Refuse to allow the behavior of others to destroy your inner peace, for there is no greater wealth in this world than peace of mind. Be selective with your battles. Sometimes peace is better than being right.
When you finally make peace a priority in your life, and make deliberate life choices which protect and enhance your mental, emotional, and spiritual state, you will find yourself in a blissful place and will thoroughly enjoy that feeling. The difference between misery and happiness depends on what we do with our attention.
