Be the Bigger Person

It’s hard to be the bigger person. I write this blog from personal experiences, things I’ve been through, something I am learning, things I still need to know. I’m slowly learning to become a BIGGER PERSON. It is tough for me since I cannot control my emotion sometimes. Being the bigger person is not about offering unlimited forgiveness, regardless of the offense. It means not allowing your anger to take control of you. It means finding a way to accept what has happened to you, even if you are not okay with what has happened to you. It means being mature enough to stand in the same room as someone you cannot trust, someone you wish you would never see again, and handling yourself like an adult.

Being the bigger person does not mean you have to walk over to someone who hurt you and acts like everything is fine. It does not mean you have to be happy about running into them again. It does not mean you have to keep quiet if they start trouble. It simply means you’re not going to let them ruin your night or day. You’re not going to let them bother you because they mean nothing to you. They don’t matter to you. 

I’m slowly learning what it means to be the bigger personI’m slowly learning how to handle myself with maturity, even when the only thing I want to do is scream. Your choice, but your selection affects a lot of people, so choose wisely. I know it’s hard to be the bigger person but do it anyway. “Be the change you want to see.”
