Be Selective with your Battles

Hey everyone! I have a question for y’all. Are you the type of person who always wants to get the last say? Maybe you’re having an argument, and you feel the urge to prove your point. If so, then no shame! However, it is this topic that I want to discuss today.

Truthfully, it’s important that we are selective with the battles that we choose to participate in. What does this mean, exactly? It means that having peace in yourself is better then winning a battle. We might want to act in some situations, and sometimes, that is okay. Other times, the best thing to do is leave the situation alone or take a break until you can speak in a peaceful manner.

Keep in mind that walking away from an unhealthy situation does not mean that the other person wins. It actually means quite the opposite, because you didn’t escalate the situation to an unnecessary level. Once you have confidence in yourself, you will see that getting the last say isn’t important. In the end, knowing that you walked away without feeling the need to be the “winner” is a great accomplishment, and something to be proud of.

So, remember that not every battle is meant to be fought: love always wins! ❤️

1 Corinthhians 13: 4-7 NIV Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
