It is hard to find your place of peace if you are always looking for perfection in others. Unfortunately, you will never find someone who is perfect. They may be good at what they do, but they will never be perfect. Someday, they will let you down. Or they will do what they do and it will not be good enough for you. To be at peace, you have to accept the fact that nobody is perfect. Don’t expect it and you will find that your life becomes very enjoyable.
If someone asks for a favor, do it if you can. If you are not able to, then be honest with them. There is no need of stressing yourself with something that you are not able to do. As much as you want people to be honest with you, do the same for them. And even if people fall below your expectations, don’t lower your standards because of disappointment. Be true to yourself no matter what happens.
Choose to be at peace and pursue it. Do not be convinced to carry grudges, you will be drained. The heavier the burden you carry, the more depleted your energy will be. Know what you need to do to reclaim your peace when you lose it.
