Through writing about my experience, I reminded myself that I could learn from my unsettling experience, instead of berating myself for the unsettling experience. These are the lessons that were reinforced through the unsettling experience. When my intent is not to do harm, I can remember, how people react to me is more about them than about me. People are entitled to have bad days, however, I do not have to take responsibility for their bad days. I can not know until I know, but when I know I can choose to make healthy choices. I can honor other people’s boundaries while detaching with love.
I can pray for people and I can practice the principle of living and let live. I can keep the focus on myself while allowing the other people to be where they are in life. I don’t have to struggle to fix people. I can let people own their moods and reactions. I can be responsible to people, but I do not have to be responsible for their moods or reactions. I can give people a wide berth of space and allow them to be right where they are in their lives without trying to change or control them. I can keep my side of the street clean while allowing other people to own their side of the street.
I can seek to make peace with unsettling situations by writing about and owning my uncomfortable feelings. I can make peace with unsettling situations by being responsible to people, but not for people. I can seek to make peace with unsettling situations by making amends and then by letting go and letting God. I can make peace with unsettling situations by keeping the focus on myself, my actions and my choices. I can seek to make peace with unsettling experiences by being willing to learn from unsettling experiences. I can seek to make peace with unsettling experiences by minding my own business.
