Where to look when you are… looking for peace and quiet
Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version (NIV)
22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, , 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
It's not about you.
The purpose of your life is far greater than your personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It's far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by his purpose and for his purpose.
and now there is nothing left to fight for. My silence means I am tired of explaining my feelings to you, but now I don't have energy to explain them more. My silence means I have adapted to the changes in my life and I don't want to complain. My silence means I am on a self healing process and I am trying to forget everything I ever wanted from you. My silence means I just trying to move on gracefully with all my dignity.

Remember that it's not only the desire for wealth and position that debases and subjugates us, but also the desire for peace, leisure, travel, and learning. It doesn't matter what the external thing is, the value we place on it subjugates us to another... where our heart is set, there our impediment lies.
