Maybe my being non-confrontational is a strength, and not a weakness.

Let me explain.

For so long I was jealous of those who would get in the face of someone who they perceived had done them an injustice, had disrespected them in some way.  I always wondered why it was that I couldn’t “speak up” for my self in the same way.

Now I think it goes beyond that. 

Through some meditation I have come to believe that it is not particularly a strength to “get in someone’s face” and be “all that”.  I don’t think flying off the handle is the strong way to handle relationships, situations, or people.  If anything, I think it makes someone look more like a fool, an idiot.  Whatever phrase you want to use.

I think that way of handling it shows more of a weakness.

I think there is something to be said for finding another way to handle relationships, people, and situations.  Not that I believe I should let my self be walked all over.  But I don’t think it does anyone any good to be confrontational.  I think it just hurts both parties in the end.


To conquer oneself is a greater task than conquering others.

Gautama Buddha

I need to keep this in mind. 

Keeping this in mind will help me with my journey, and always help me reconcile with the fact that in the past week I have lost 3 followers.

When I first started my blog here, I was so concerned with having very few followers of my blog.  I thought I needed to have more, to have as many as possible, to have the most.  As if somehow that would validate me.  Today, that is not what is that important to me.

My blog here is kind of like my little corner of the world.  And I need to remember the purpose I had in mind when I started my blog, and that I do not need to clog it up with as many people as I can fit into my little corner of the world.  My healing is much more important.

In conquering my self I can truly start to heal, because it all comes from within.
