Sometimes silence is the best answer, because not everyone deserves your reaction

You don’t need to get even with a person who hurt you. You don’t need to insult those who insulted you. Not all people are worthy of your attention even when it comes to the negative.

Often, the most correct way to deal with uncomfortable situations is to not react at all.

By not reacting to all the things that bother you, you show a great level of wisdom and maturity.

Your energy is way too precious to be spent on reacting to all the things that annoy you. You will only exhaust your positivity which will just stop you from seeing all the beauty and goodness out there.

Not all people will like you, but that’s alright. People will not always treat you the way you deserve, but that doesn’t automatically mean that you should stoop to their level. By simply walking away you will save yourself from the trouble of trying to “win” the affection of someone, especially if they are undeserving of it to begin with.

And not reacting doesn’t necessarily mean that you are ok with how things are.

You have the ability to stay calm and in control and say ‘NO’ to drama because peace is crucially important to you.

You don’t need anyone to validate you. You don’t need people telling you that you aren’t good enough. You don’t need false friends and shallow relationships.

That is why by not reacting, you are in truth saying all that needs to be said.

By reacting to the provocations of others, you are giving them the green light to trample over you. So, rather than trying to control other people, try controlling yourself, your thoughts, and your actions.

Additionally, by choosing the stoic path, you are sending a powerful message that you will not tolerate disrespectful behavior of any kind.

After all, it is sometimes better to reset everything, than wait for someone to change or give you closure.
