I’m learning to not react to everything around me.
I realize that some people take joy in your reactions and so they make things happen for you to react. It’s not easy to not react especially when it has something to do with your ego and respect. You feel the need to show yourself and to not look foolish or like you can’t contend with someone.
Those things are not bad but sometimes you win and prove a point by not reacting the way they want you to react.
Today at work, I’m so happy I didn’t react. It has to be God. I feel so proud of myself. Tomorrow is another day.
