Why we should RISE above.

What happens when you decide to cease the cycle of unhealthy dialogue?

I’m talking about reoccuring confrontations, nasty arguements, and negative exhanges. Those…

What happens when you just decide to stop and no longer participate?

Well…I can tell you 1st hand that the feeling is not great at first, but with much practice and effort, internal peace will no longer need peace situations to be peaceful. Get it? Meaning whether a good or bad day peace remains.

Rise above.

Rising above is not entertaining ignorance by responding, or allowing yourself to feel like crap for chosing not to respond. Notice I said – allowing – yourself.

Instead, rising above is a self empowerment tool, demonstrating that you can be better.

Rising above is the act of stepping over ignorance – getting a better view to see a bigger picture.

Maya Angelou said it herself. When you know better, you do better. By the way, she never said doing better would be easy.

There are things on this planet that we cannot change, and people, when unwilling, are one of them.

Why waste precious energy and time on the changing the inevitable?

It’s inevitable!

All that you are required to do, is to be conscious of how you think and act (respond). That’s your responsibility.

What others do is their business. They have to face the karmic repercussions for their thoughts, decisions, and choices. Not you. So stop adopting and volunteering to carry their burdens. It’s not your job. It’s theirs.

Rise up and rise above.


Peace and blessings! 😘
