KEEPING COMPOSURE

It is only when my friends tell me how they would have reacted in a situation, that I realise my level of composure is different. Recently, I experienced someone I thought I knew well, speaking to me in a less than kind manner and honestly it was more appalling than hurtful, but hurtful nonetheless. What surprised me was that I had never seen this side to them. We had always laughed together, conversed and ultimately they were good. So yeah, the manner of speech was abysmal but I also know that you will always be disappointed when you expect people to act as you would.
I honestly don’t know where my calm comes from, although if I think hard enough about it, it might be from my dad. I’d say mum is the firecracker of the two, which is perhaps one of the reasons why they make a good team, but I digress. I used to think it was a bad thing being so soft, emotional and just all-round ‘the person who feels things too deeply’. This was before I came to realise that it’s just who I am and I have to embrace it. I might not explode over situations but I am mature enough to understand that there is grace in remaining kind in cruel situations. (Don’t get me wrong I’m an Aries so I can be very fiery, but my default setting is peace and tranquility). I have also come to realise that our reaction to a situation literally has the power to change the situation itself and sometimes it’s better to react
with no reaction.
“If you ever get the chance to treat them how they treated you, I hope you choose to walk away. You will sleep better knowing that you kept your dignity all the way through.”
