Protecting my peace:

Photo by PNW Production on

I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. Mines was good. But one thing that had me questioning myself was a comment that was made on thanksgiving. Let’s just say that the person who said it wanted to go somewhere else for Thanksgiving but decided to come to see me. I had a conversation with my husband about what was said the next day. It hurt me because this person is important to me, and I felt like I was important to them. So from that day on, I was like I’m going to protect my peace. I have had enough hurt to last me a lifetime, but that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. To allow people to hurt and say words that are not okay I will not allow that in my life anymore. I have let so many people just say and do what they will, but not anymore. I have been working on myself and going to counseling to help me heal and move on with my life. I won’t ever take the people who show up for me for granted. But in no way will I make an effort to be there for those who don’t feel like I’m important enough.

  1. I read your post. I have had some bad experiences myself and this is what I have come to. Everytime you are disturbed by something, quote or read Isaiah 41:10. He will strengthen you , help you and uphold you. Also, pray for the person who has wronged you. Jesus tells us to pray for our enemies. I’m not saying that you have to befriend that person, just pray for them. That will help you to be at peace.
