Continue reading for encouragement and inspiration to help you keep on treading ahead ! Check out the Exceptions Song of the week… ….
As I reflect back on this past week in search of solutions to use for the week to come so that we may be proficient, efficient, bearing fruit from our labor while earning a living and making a life; I think of how many times I should have bit my lip and didn’t.
As the ol’ adage suggest: it doesn’t matter who’s right, who’s wrong, who started it, why it is even a question, or anything else that truly has merit to keep it going; all that matters is how to stop bickering and such. There are people who love to argue about everything, those who just can’t stand to see someone else happy, and those who need our help of silence to help them stop seeing life as the darkest part of their day and/or night.
Sweet Spot: Choose Wisely
That leave their waste behind. Learn how to overcome by not saying a word and allowing the moment to pass and the memory to leave. When you respond negatively to people who are ‘just waiting for you to respond”; they win immediately. Learn how to make yourself not respond at the right time, for it is time that you will save by not giving in the stress, anxiety, and turmoil bantering causes.
Be Encouraged, Sometimes it’s just BEST: Don’t Respond. Here are some tips to help you bite the bullet and keep your mouth shut even though you so want to share your peace of mind. Keep your peace of mind: You Don’t Have To Respond.
Check out this weeks Exception To The Rules Song of the WEEK: Be Still and Know – Steven Curtis Chapman
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. 24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
James 3:8 (KJV)
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
The sum of the matter is this: If you don’t want a huge negative disruption on your hands, every time you have interactions with certain people in your life, and you don’t want to cause altercations with folks who are truly trying their best to rub you the wrong way; then learn how to NOT respond to folks even during the most heated arguments, moments of betrayal, and other daily episodes of drama that will suck the life out of you if you let it. You could be doing so much more than wasting your time.
Look, I am human just like you; most certainly I am not perfect. I fall prey to others like this on more occasions than I would like to admit. But again, IF I was perfect I wouldn’t need the Good Lord Above. I need him every second, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, century, until I get to Eternity. So, I know how ya feel some times and especially around certain people who are our “thorns in the side”. Even still, the benefits to you to remain silent at times by far outweighs the negative feels you’re going to carry around for a while after encountering drama.
Here are some great resources for you to use to help you get a-hold of your tongue and on with your mission in positive increments of TIME.
Proverbs 15:1 (KJV)
15 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
6….and setteth on fire the course of nature
Learn how to control your tongue in the most difficult circumstances
Have a blessed week and remember that your litmus test for: saving wasted time and hurt feelings from drama and such is to learn when not to respond. Practice Practice Practice the art of learning to be Still. IF you have positive TIPS TO SHARE, please post in comment section of this post.
