You don't have to pick up the phone!

You are in charge of protecting your peace at all costs.  If you decide not to answer your phone, that is your prerogative.  A few months ago, I decided that I wasn't going to answer my phone all weekend and give myself a break from certain individuals who can literally drain the life out of me if I let them. So many times, people will call you and immediately start dumping their trash on you without even asking how your day has been, or if you have the capacity to receive them. It’s like all they care about is what they have going on, not you.  


Can you believe that when I finally did answer my phone, the caller was mad because I didn't pick up when they kept calling.  I said, but I responded with a text.  That wasn't enough for them. All I could think was, that is too bad.  I have to do what is right for me and I need to keep my mental health intact and I can't do that when I am constantly digesting everyone else's issues.  Especially when those issues don't even belong to them, they just take them on and then decide to dump them on someone else.  Have you ever had that happen to you? Or have you been that person in the past? I know I have.  I would get offended by something that was happening to someone else and make it my own, only causing myself discomfort and stress.  


I have been making it a habit that when I speak with a close friend of mine and I feel like I need to release some negativity or sadness in my life, I will ask if they have the capacity to receive, and if they tell me no, I keep it to myself.  It doesn't happen often with me because I do most of my releasing through my writing at night in my journal or I will dial up to my God and have a conversation with Him. Casting all my cares on Him because He cares for me. You can find that scripture in 1 Peter 5:7. Sometimes God will tell me to be still. It is the peacefulness of that stillness that I can find solace in whatever may be upsetting me and He reveals things I need to work out on myself.


I want to give you a few ways to protect your peace:


1.      Pay attention to what triggers you and adjust accordingly.

2.      Let go of negative people and negative things.

3.      Reduce your media consumption. Have you picked up a good book lately. (I highly recommend Identity Cry-Sis)

4.      Make time for yourself.  When was the last time you took yourself on a date?

5.      Make the changes where you are able too.


You are in charge of yourself and your happiness.  I learned a long time ago that happiness starts on the inside of you. You are the deciding factor of when and if you are going to allow someone to come in and disrupt your mood.  We have to set boundaries with people. You have to make your mental, emotional, and spiritual health a priority.  Deciding from this place requires you to think deeply about your values and what's important to you. So, choose you today!


IF you have a moment, its my sister Celeste special day today! Stop and wish her a happy birthday!

Thank you!


Sending you love, light and positive vibes,

Cassie K.
