Some Things Are Not Worth The Headache
There are those who will argue at the drop of a hat. We need to learn that we don’t need to answer every question or deal with every issue. It’s not necessary to respond to everything you disagree with. It is easy to get led into fussing and fighting, which results in stress, anguish, and hurt feelings.
There was a poster that read:
Never wrestle with a pig you’ll both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
There are people in all areas of your life who try to get you in the mud.
How do you overcome:
Keep smiling. Psa. 126:2
Live so you like yourself. Matt. 22:39
Don’t feel you have to compete with others. 2 Cor. 10:12
Practice serenity. Rom. 12:20
Give a soft answer to hard words. Prov. 15:1; 26:5
Ask yourself is this worth the headache? Does it matter? Phil 1:18
