Life challenges


any people argue, confront or fight over anything – turning their lives into a series of battles. There is so much frustration in living this type of life that you lose track of what is truly relevant.

The tiniest disagreement or glitch can become a big deal – if your goal (consciously or unconsciously) is to have everything work out in your favour.

The truth is life is rarely exactly the way we want it to be, and other people often don’t act as we would like them to. There are always going to be people who disagree with you or have different opinions from you. If you fight against this principle of life, you will spend most of your life fighting battles.
so, a peaceful way is to decide consciously which battles are worth fighting and which battles to be left alone.

Most battles you may find pull you away from your most tranquil feelings.

Is it really important that you prove to your spouse that you are right and she is wrong or does your preference of which restaurant or movie to go to matter enough to argue over it?

Does a small scratch on your car warrant losing your temper, swearing and threatening a court action?

You must choose your battles wisely, if you do that, there will come a day when you will rarely feel the need to do battle at all.
