Your biggest distraction will always be a battle not worth fighting.
Lately I've noticed myself giving less energy to some people and conversations. Here's why: some people are worth fighting for, and other people are only worth escaping from.
You have to stop becoming distracted by battles that were not meant for you to fight.
Stop letting frustration drive you into arguments you shouldn't be in.
There has to be a point where you walk away from things that no longer serve you. They tend to be the things that drain you and leave you lifeless. They tend to be the people who project anger and frustration on everyone else by picking petty fights.
The catch is that your pride will want a fight, but thankfully your spirit will want an escape.
At the end of the day, you'll have to make the decision to either go into battle or simply walk by and forget it ever happened.
That doesn't mean you won't be angry, it just means you will finally be in control. You will take the less traveled road and make things different this time. Not only that, but you'll set a pattern of discipline that will bring peace in your life instead of chaos.
Ask yourself: is it worth the fight? The time? The stress? If not, what is it there to distract you from?
