Maturity comes with age, most would say, but lately I came to terms where I learned so much more than what was told. Choosing your battle is essential when you realize the importance of your time and energy. Not all things are worth your time. Fortunately for me, the art of deadma is becoming easier to understand and apply. I can be very cold and awkward. It can take me a long time to warm up again if there is a slight chance of that possibility. But mostly, I’d rather be comfortably doing my own thing than minding each and everyone’s business.
I came across an article in one of the blogs I am following. It states 17 things you stop caring about the closer you get to 30. One of which is trying to impress other people all the time. Where I realized, I care less now of what other people thinks of me as long as I am at peace with myself and has that level of happiness, I’m good. The more you pay attention to so many people around, the more you get no peace of mind. Know what you want and focus all your energy into it. Listen around but still stick to what you think is right.
When you learn to choose your battle, you become at peace.
