Peace. Its something most of us long to have but, have to create. Just because you do not bother anyone doesn't mean that they will not bother you. So, here's an overview of the things you ought to do in order to achieve some significant level of peace in your life.
1. Don't tell everyone about everything that is happening in your life. It's okay to keep things to yourself, and to not divulge every detail about what happens in your life. If you want to avoid being a topic of discussion or constantly being asked about things that happened a while back.
2. Cut off people who bring negativity in your life or whose relation doesn't bring about happiness/growth/positivity, be it family or friends. Cutting off could literally be completely ending a relationship, avoiding them in certain settings or making clear your boundaries and where you stand with them. Blocking people is sometimes something that is very necessary because, there are those people who are just stubborn headed.
3. Avoid social media. Stop posting about your life on social media. Unless social media is a platform that pays you to create content, avoid using social media to pass time. It's okay to occasionally check out what's happening around the world however, you need to limit the amount of screen time you have. Live life. Don't do it vicariously through someone else because, you too are capable of doing what she/he is doing.
4. Stop worrying about what other people think about you. I know this is something that many of us struggle with considering the world that we currently live in is one that has a judgemental strand embedded in each and every one of their DNA.
Learn to embrace yourself. The world has way too many unrealistic standards. That is why it's important that you create your own standards and that the only opinion that should matter is your own.
5. It's a blessing to be alone. As you grow older you'll realize that not everyone is for you and that's okay. The right type of people will always gravitate towards you when you are your most authentic self. However, there are times when you will find yourself alone and it is okay.
6. Make yourself a priority in everything that you do. It is important that you do what makes you happy. Stop trying to please everyone. You only have one life to live so be sure to make it a happy and memorable one.
7. Pray about everything. There is no denying that life is challenging so, it's very important that you take everything to the Lord in prayer. Continuously ask for guidance/peace/protection & be thankful for the blessings that are bestowed upon your life (irrespective of how small or big).
