Hey lovelies! Thanks for tuning in again for the 15th day! I appreciate it 💕
So let’s talk about it. We all know that life is all about choices and knowing how to pick your battles – a very important one is learning when to walk away. No, I’m not saying you should accept defeat – those are two separate things – but knowing how to bow out gracefully for the sake of maintaining your own peace is another and that’s the point I want to make.
We all know it’s beyond pointless attempting to win an argument with someone whose not willing to actually listen to you. They may hear you. They may even listen to you but solely for the purpose of rebuttal. So why waste your time? Doesn’t matter how many facts and sources you’ve cited that prove them wrong. To them, you’ll always be wrong so why bother? If life is all about choosing our battles wisely then why is this any exception?
Sometimes the smart and best method is to accept the W by taking the L. You and the facts know that you’re right, so why is that not enough for you? Ego? Not throwing shade but try reevaluating yourself when you find yourself in these types of altercations. Stop. Take a minute to breathe. Reevaluate – ask yourself if you’re minding the business that pays you – if it isn’t, get up and walk away. It can be that simple. It can even be as simple as putting up conversational boundaries with known combatants or even just choosing to permanently dissociating with someone outside of necessity because your sanity is 1000% more worth it.
Either way, learn what method is best for you and learn when to walk away. You’re better than the needless petty arguments. Even if it is your mom. Jk.
Keep living, loving, and laughing.
