Make peace

It’s innate for any human being to try to understand how things work. I will share my reasoning on why my life is as good as it is. I plan to split my findings into short posts and knit them along the way.

One of the things that served me most is making peace with where I am. This helps me rest, regain balance, and see clearly what would be a good next step. Unhappiness would drain the mental energy and fog the clarity that I’d need to see the solution and work my way to it. This is why I think that in hard times it’s wise to first take a break, regain balance and clear vision, and only then act or decide what to do. The break can be as simple as a walk, enjoy a coffee, or take a shower. It can also be a couple of days off, depending on the issue.

Sometimes, when I think I did something that I’m not content about, I would first anxiously try think of how to prevent that from happening again. But then I remember that this is not a good time to make long-term decisions, and instead try to find a way to calm down, make peace with what happened, and only then think about solutions or preventive measures.

Make peace first, and then everything else.
