I am learning that silence is golden and this mantra is very true as I approach age of thirty-five. I am learning not to react in the moment because my first reaction will bring about hurt feelings. I try not to respond in anger or frustration and I recognize the moment when I need to walk away from a situation. And there are moments when I walk away for awhile.
I am trying my best to live my life where I am my authentic self. Where I am true to myself. And I am striving for goals that will allow me to be a better person for others. I am learning I can’t allow other people feelings to rub off on me. Their energy cannot become my own.
Learn how to be silent. You will be surprise what tidbits you learn about yourself and others all while you are being silent.
