The battle isn’t with you.

There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict. Walk away; the battle they are fighting isn’t with you, it is with themselves.

  1. I know this now. I used to feel guilty all the time and blamed myself, but now I know that everyone is responsible for their own happiness. When I explored the pattern of behavior in them, I realized it was their disconnection to themselves. They were fighting a battle within themselves. They were just overreacting to everyone and everything around them. For me, I learned that I have every right to protect my energy and my own wellbeing. I don’t have to put up with people who are toxic & the best thing I could do for myself is let them go & let them be. It’s not my job to save them or fix them. I realized that I don’t have to do anything that makes me feel uncomfortable. I’m only responsible for myself (unless you have young children), but these people aren’t children, although they acted like them…because they were too demanding & expected too much from me. I learned that I am allowed to put myself first, it is selfish, but no one will take care of you unless you take care of yourself first. The only relationship you can truly depend on is the one you have with yourself.
