Confrontation takes up a lot of energy but this is energy that drains not uplifts.
It is human nature to prove ourselves right, to make a point when we believe that we've been wronged. And then we channel all our energies into activities that drain us. No wonder we are stressed and depressed.
Why not channel energies into things that make our spirits soar - think love instead. When we come from a place of love we look at life with a sense of peace and acceptance. Love is joyful and uplifts.
Buddha said, "In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins - not through strength but through persistence". The stream does not confront with anger. It flows quietly and gently around the rock and moves on in it's path with confidence. Nature is truly a great teacher. Let go and move on. If you must persist, persist with love.
Mother Teresa said, "Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing". So why confront in anger? Change angry confrontation into a smile and act from a place of love. Give a gift to someone. Let life be like a Love Song - exciting, joyful and fulfilling.
This one sums up (for me) that exhilarating feeling that comes from love.
I hope you enjoyed one of my favourite Love songs.
Sending you all a virtual smile and wishing you all love, light and peace.
