Unworthy Battle

Truth is true, the rest is irrelevant.
So why do we fight to convince others of truth?
Why do we fight disharmony with discord?
It makes no difference and only wastes precious energy.

The ego believes that if someone sees the bad parts in us
It somehow takes something away from us.
The truth is, we all have bad parts,
And we’re aware of those bad parts, so who cares who sees?

If people walk away from you
And strive with all their might to take others with them,
The ones that leave weren’t with you to begin with
And you need no one to validate who you really are anyway.

Let them go.
Let disharmony go.
Stop trying to control things over which you have no control,
Like the thoughts of others or actions as well.

The only person we have the power to control is ourselves.
That is a definitive truth,
And one you do not need to convince others of.
If others do not wish to know, who are you to assign yourself as their personal guru?

Focus on yourself and how you feel.
If something hurts, say so then let go.
If you have the power to change yourself
Because you are not healthy, do so.

Make no attempt to thwart or control others.
Seek only to set your own boundaries.
As Ghandi said, “Be the peace you want to see.”
And the Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Such infinite truths and wisdom...
Are all too easily tossed out the window when ego clashes with ego.
There is no way to win when someone else has to lose.
There is no cowardice in having the strength to leave an unworthy battle.
