Walking away with your head held high

When I headed to China with a church friend last year, certain situations and actions of others made us extremely frustrated and upset. More than often we were disappointed at how things went, or swept over by waves of indignation. But there wasn’t anyone to turn to except each other so we prayed.

She said this while praying together one of the nights. Something along the lines of asking for the abilities to do the right things/ react in the right way such that we can walk away with our heads held high. That sentence has stayed with me ever since.

When you don’t know what to say, how to respond, or what to do, and you’re so upset by what happened yet you know you should hold your tongue … but holding your tongue just makes you even more upset.

Just. Walk. Away. With. Your. Head. Held. High

You don’t have to react. You don’t exactly know how to respond. But there’s a means by which you can choose to respond through. Which is to walk away.

You don’t owe anyone an explanation.

I did that yesterday.
