As I’ve gotten older, I realize there’s nothing more important than my peace…and protecting it at all costs.
I used to spend time with people who thrived on gossip and drama, until I realized how much of my personal energy that time cost me.
Now, I limit my time and interaction with people, places and things that drain my energy. I also set firm boundaries on protecting my mental wellbeing, and while it’s not always easy, it does get better over time.
In this episode, I’m sharing the different ways I’ve come to learn to protect my peace and how it’s made a huge difference in my life.
If you’re struggling to set boundaries, preserve your energy or protect your peace, hopefully some of my strategies and experiences can help you!
