Each day we might find ourselves in situations that call on us to battle others. Inevitably, some of these situations might be warranted to protect ourselves and our families.
But have we considered the ones that aren’t?
Our battles can be justified strongly with our ego and the “win at all costs” mentality.
But the question we might consider asking ourselves beforehand is, “What are we fighting this battle for anyways?”. Although we may end up feeling we got the “W”, at what cost did it come?
Could humility, patience, and perspective took us on a completely alternative path. One where understanding and compassion guide our emotions and lays the foundation for future decisions on battles.
A path of our choosing where we never have to battle in the first place.
