" Love Is A Battlefield ... "

When I'm losing control
Will you turn me away ...
Will it still feel the same
There's no way this will die
But if we get much closer
I could lose control
And if your heart surrenders
You'll need me to hold

We are young
Heartache to heartache we stand
No promises
No demands
Love is a battlefield

We are strong
No one can tell us we're wrong
Searching our hearts for so long
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield

~ Pat Benatar ~ Love Is A Battlefield ~

Sometimes you just have to get in the battlefield, you have no choice but to hold firm to your beliefs and convictions till the end.  But sometimes you just have to walk away.

As it is said ... you must learn to pick your battles because some will forever be raging no matter how hard you fight, the drama will continue.  Somethings you have to except as they are and then you decide how to deal or if to deal at all. 

So how do you decide?  
Ask yourself if this is something you feel passionate about ... and if it will really matter 5 years from now.  Then make a decision to remove yourself from a negative, toxic situation towards a positive and productive frame of mind.

If passion and matters apply then make sure your approach is spot on.  Remember arguing when you are angry will be the best speech you will regret.  Retreat and understand the other’s point of view.  Your goal should not be to hurt another because then you are in battle for the wrong reason.  Every single argument you have ought to aim to improve an undesirable situation. 

Inner peace begins the moment you choose 
not to allow another person or event to control your emotions ...

Connections that are carefree, laid back and easygoing are usually the most loving ones.  Those are the ones we strive for.  There is always a hidden message or lesson in any circumstance.  So instead of getting caught up in the whirlwind of emotions and resist what we are going through, make the choose to react differently.  Make sure you are able to speak coherently, honestly and from a place of compromise and compassion.  Because those battles that really matter need all the energy you have to endure.
