I am a peacekeeper. Relationships are more durable when they are fueled by positive energy. I keep away from negativity as a way to maintain amicability.
Tensions are difficult to handle, so I prefer to diffuse them early. My department at work is a peaceful place because of that. I set a tone of positivity by how I deal with issues. Instead of pointing the finger, I focus on finding resolutions.
This approach keeps issues from blowing up unnecessarily. I appreciate when my team members come to me for assistance to resolve something.
When a friend is dealing with a personal issue, I am careful with giving advice. It is important to encourage open-mindedness and forgiveness. Doing this sets the tone for my friend to deal with the situation maturely.
Although I only hold responsibility for my own actions, I look out for my friends. I do what I am able to lift them out of negativity.
Personal conflict impacts emotions and makes it difficult to think clearly. Before my own relationships get to the point of conflict, I choose to wave the white flag. Promoting peace is hardly an admission of guilt. It is a sign of willingness to forgive and forget.
The further away from negative energy I am, the greater my quality of life.
Today, each of my days is rich because of the soul-filling energy that I promote. I know that I am responsible for creating the life that I am happy with. That starts by focusing on positive living.
