REACTING TO EVERYTHING …

Sudha Murthy’s take on life, trials and tribulations:

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
I Don’t Have To React To ‘Everything’ That Bothers Me.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
I don’t have to hurt those who hurt me.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Maybe the ‘ultimate’ sign of maturity is walking away instead of getting even.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
The energy it takes to react to every bad thing that happens to you drains you and stops you from seeing the other good things in life.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
I’m not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
I won’t be able to get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Trying so hard to ‘win’ anyone is just a ‘waste’ of time and energy and it fills you with ‘nothing’ but emptiness.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Not reacting doesn’t mean I’m okay with things,
It just means I’m choosing to ‘rise’ above it.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Sometimes ‘not’ saying anything at all says everything.’

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Reacting to things that upset you gives someone else power over ‘your’ emotions.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Even if I react,
It won’t change anything,
It won’t make people suddenly love and respect me,
It won’t magically change their minds.

I’m Slowly Learning That :-
Life is ‘better lived’ when you ‘don’t’ center it on what’s happening around you and ‘center it on’ what’s happening ‘inside you’ instead.

‘Work’ on yourself and your inner peace and you’ll come to ‘realize’ that ‘not’ reacting to every little thing that bothers you is the ‘first ingredient’ to living a happy and healthy life.
