Power In Self-Control

Have you ever just wanted to lash out at someone for being incompetent or “clapping-back” when someone is purposely trying to bring you out of character? I have. However, there is power in refraining from reacting in such an ugly manner. When you react horribly it gives the other person power over you. Why would you want someone to have that type of power, over YOU, queen? You might refute it and say “nobody controls me” but they did when you gave them what they wanted, a reaction. We only have the power to control how we respond in the heat of the moment. No one makes you do anything, you lose control of your power and give it away. If you see a social media post and you know it’s a subliminal message towards you, instead of giving your two cents and arguing about it, ignore it, wish them the best, if you do, your peace will not be disrupted. Let me talk about my growth that I am so very proud of. I was the person that would wear my fingers out typing my thoughts on social media to prove a point or to defend myself, at the end of the argument I felt tired, stressed and highly irritated, my peace disappeared. After years of “arguing” on social media, I finally discovered that it wasn’t worth losing my peace or sanity over something petty and to be forgotten the next day. I am not saying don’t stand up for yourself or speak your mind, however if you feel like you are losing control and giving away your peace, disengage from the conversation or environment. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone because that would mean your value and worth is determined by someone else and that’s an unhealthy way of thinking. You ultimately win when you don’t give in to someone else’s premeditated ill intentions. I have decided I will not allow a post or an opinion stress me out on my personal devices that I spend my coins on. It’s definitely not worth it. Next time you feel the urge to attack, refrain and flex your strength with self-control. You are powerful mama and let peace be your goal!
