Wisdom Is The New Strong.
A wise man is strong, yes, a man of knowledge increases strength. Proverbs 24:5
I used to think that being strong meant putting up with the drama, negativity, and abuse.
I felt I had to fight my way thru life to survive and I could tolerate whatever others threw at me..
I was wrong.
Faking strong made me resentful, bitter, judgmental, defensive, regretful, and disconnect from my true self.
The weak pretend they are strong by copying and following other people. A wise person will study and identify an area of weakness in self to improve on.
I’ve learned that sometimes it’s wise to avoid some battles, and instead of climbing a mountain, march around it.
Being strong means having the courage to stand alone, be my own person, not be easily provoked, suffer fools gladly, bridle my tongue, walk away, having self-respect, saying no without having to explain or defend my choices and maintaining peace and harmony within myself.
At this point in my life, I want to solve problems not create them. I want to mend bridges not set them on fire. I want to do life with those who are willing to put in the time and love. I am excited to explore and embrace this season of my life.
I chose to walk away from energy vampires, unsafe people, one-sided relationship, from hearts that rejoice in another’s downfall, eyes that see faults, and a mouth that speak foolishness.
It’s OK not to belong where you once fitted in. It’s OK to be the underdog, and not have to live up to other people’s expectations.
If walking away makes me a coward and weak. So be it. I couldn’t be happier with my peaceful and drama free life.
How are you evolving?
