Lately, various individuals have presented me with opportunities to become offended. However, I continue to have the same epiphany. It’s just not worth it!!!!!!!
It seems like it has taken me years to realize this powerful concept. it’s just not worth my time, energy and mental capacity to allow people to offend me. People are flawed. Therefore, if I allow someone else’s negativity to impact mine, then I’m giving that individual control over me.
Now, this didn’t happen instantly. This has become a life-long lesson. One that still requires me to remember, it’s just not worth it. God created us with feelings and emotions. However, He never meant us to be led by our feelings and emotions. Feelings/Emotions are like the degrees on a thermometer. They let us know where we’re at that period of time. Give that situation some time and you may find that…it’s just not worth it.
It’s not worth getting upset. It’s not worth another sleepless night. It’s not worth losing your appetite. The goal should always be to acknowledge the thought and feeling; but not let them affect you or your behavior.
So, the next time someone presents you with this horrible opportunity. Repeat after me, “It’s Just Not Worth It.” And, keep living abundantly 🙂
