Don’t Kill My Vibe: 4 Ways To Keep Your Inner Peace In Any Environment

Wellness

There's this meme that's been making its way around social media for a while now that reads: "If it costs you your peace, it's not worth it."


The fact that this quote has been posted, reposted, and shared countless times proves how much its relevance resonates. But it almost runs the risk of coming across as a prerequisite when we're thinking about taking on a new project, job, or relationship.

If it messes with your peace, don't do it. Simple, right? But what about those situations that you're already in?

It's not always easy to say goodbye to an unhealthy environment. So in the meantime, the least we can do is keep our peace to make sure we don't go loca. There's no reason to feel like we can't get anything out of life until we're out of this situation. Here's how to master peace in an unpeaceful environment:

Recognizing Is The First Step

You know when people joke around and say that admitting something to yourself is the first step to overcoming it? As sarcastic as it can be sometimes, that same idea can serve as truth in situations that constantly test your patience and positivity.

Once you get past feeling like something is wrong but not being able to pinpoint it, and ultimately cross over to recognizing that you may be in a toxic and negative situation, you'll be able to handle it better. Certain things won't catch you by surprise and cause you to immediately react. Instead, you'll almost see it coming and have your response ready.

This doesn't necessarily have to be a clap back or shade session, but you will be able to choose a response that shows you're unbothered and don't have time to feed into the negativity.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
