Masked are the feelings that we put forth in order to make it through the day. There are times when you just want to lose it on someone. They did you wrong in some manner, they weren’t the most professional at addressing a situation you were involved in. However, you decided not to bite at the bait.
Life puts people in our lives to test our metal and our mental. To see if we’re going to allow negative energy to ruin the path we’ve built for ourselves. Although people may try your patience, you always have to ask yourself if it’s worth losing your castle over. Maybe there’s another way to address the issue without losing it all. Sometimes you take it on the chin now to get your just due later.
Don’t let pride get in the way of progress. Don’t let people drag you down to the mud and fight with them like pigs because you’ll lose, they’ll win and everything you’ve tried to build might go to the waste side. If you have to defend yourself do it smartly and if necessary do it with the direct the same energy back in the direction it came.
Be smart. Life is a game of chess. Don’t act on emotion, act with strategy. Keep moving.
