Facing Forward

Walk Away

May 25 (2)

I used to argue a lot.  I argued with strangers, family members, co-workers.  I argued so much I exhausted myself.  Now I’m silent when I would normally protest and if I’m really upset I walk away.

I used to be afraid to walk away.  I thought it was better to fight.  But fighting only leads to saying a lot of things that upset the other person and in turn that person hurts me and feels justified in doing so because I said nasty things to them.  It’s nice not being the person who says nasty things.  That’s the beauty of walking away.
