“if you don’t have peace, it isn’t because someone took it from you; you gave it away. You cannot always control what happens to you, but you can control what happens in you.”
― John C. Maxwell, Be a People Person
It really is a choice to keep your peace or give it away. I have given mine away many times in life, but I am working toward changing that. I once heard it said that you really should only worry about how you treat people not how they treat you, because as you learn to treat other well it usually is reciprocate.
