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.
