Strife hinders our progress, be peaceful
Good evening guys, how are you doing today? I hope you had a great day. Let's quickly review yesterday's article.
The people that usually spice the truth do it for in order to achieve two things which are the attention and the approval of the people listening. But the thing is that, it backfires. And if you continue to do the same thing overtime, people will discover the probability for you to stretch the truth beyond bounds and then you lose your credibility with them. And once you lose that, it will take a long time to get your credibility back that is if you ever get it. There's nothing wrong in saying something with enthusiasm but try to avoid exaggeration. Make sure you stick with the facts, that is the truth and resist the urge to exaggerate hereby becoming the focus.
Exaggerating isn’t going to take you anywhere. Rather, it will make you look stupid and you loose the trust others have in you.
Exaggeration is a type of lying. It looks innocent but in real time it's a form of saying and adding more to a truth than has happened.
There are two things about lies and they're firstly, all lies will eventually get discovered and you'll lose your integrity in sight of people and secondly, when it's found out, people will most likely want to cut you in order to prevent future lies.
The remedy is for you to say what you mean and mean what you say. This is one of the most important things that you need to remember when communicating with people. Say things the way they are.

Strife hinders our progress. Strife takes our focus away from things that matter and makes us ineffective. Truthfully, it takes a lot of energy to engage in conflict with other people, so why do we keep doing it? The problem is that we have become comfortable with strife rather than making peace with each other.
In other words, we’ve gotten accustomed to being disagreeable instead of disagreeing. The two aren’t the same. In fact, we can disagree without being disagreeable.
We must remember that a disagreement is just that, a disagreement. It does not mean that we hate someone or that we wish for them to fail miserably in life. Disagreement does not mean a dislike for the person who holds an opposing view or opinion. It means simply an opposing of point of view.
It is not hard to be peaceful. All you have to do is follow two simple rules:
First, be respectful of other people, their opinions, and positions
Secondly, always strive to agree with the other party (if there is indeed something that you can agree on)
If you respect the other party and your own ability to see beyond your limited perspective, you will likely find common ground with them, which is the only way that violence and strife can be eliminated. Peaceful people are usually not stubborn: they are merely confident in their position and are willing to negotiate or compromise in order to reach a solution that is beneficial for all parties involved.
If we can learn to practice this kind of peace, I believe that our world will move forward by leaps and bounds; however, peace will not happen overnight but rather become a gradual process as more people start making it a priority.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
