Creating an Inner Peace That Endures!

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink, or use drugs when stressed; I write.


My life has been an extraordinary one because I am an individual with collective thoughts. As is true for many people, I cannot honestly say that I live my life the way my soul intended.

Until a few years ago, I lived in a world of darkness; I felt miserable most of the time and thought there was no way to find myself.

Sometimes the pain I felt overcame me with sadness, and I longed not to exist. I thought about all the things that weighed me down.

I realized I was not carrying such a burden, but my sense of connectedness to everything made me feel responsible.

One morning, after years of suffering, as I struggled to start my day, I took the time to listen to the cheerful and inspiring singing of sparrows.

Their chirping echoed beautifully as I casually listened, and it was as if they were unintentionally transferring their happiness to me, and I was absorbing it.

That day, I experienced a unique inner peace, and I feel fortunate to have found it.


Several years ago, I tried to live a better life but failed. Finally, I took action. As I became more confident and more determined, I rediscovered myself, taking the first step in finding inner peace.

I turned into someone of my likeness-an increasingly well-developed woman, and I felt like the fiend inside me helped me live my dreams.

While it may seem strange, the person I was one month ago differs from who I am now. It is because we never stop growing.

The world is densely populated, so there is a lot of negative energy, but if you set energetic boundaries, it is possible to deal with the stresses of life and find inner peace.

It's depressing to deal with negativity, especially when absorbing other people’s negativity.

The days before I realized the people I was around were negative and not who I needed in my life, because they filled me with a tug of melancholy that tormented me as I tried to ignore the veiled darkness.

To release all negativity, I had to let go of those who poured their negativity on me. It was hard to learn to say “no” to people who did not deserve my time.

When I let go of my negative thinking and thought positively, I found an incredible sense of peace.


The lesson I learned from my mistake is that I was so wrong to bind my destiny to the fates of others. That was how I learned to appreciate the daylight, and I understood how it eliminated the darkness.

Although it is the light that frightens us, not the night. To put it simply; We are all meant to find the daylight and not fear it.

Though being terrified of the daytime isn’t being broken or concealing a dark secret. It’s when one can choose to go back to feeling safe instead of forward toward growth.

In this sense, there are multiple sides to all of us. Yes, there are different sides to the various personalities present in each of us, such as who we are–who we think we are, and who we could be if we build our goals and follow our dreams.

Finding your path is an ongoing process, as there is no single path that is the same.

One thing my experience has taught me is striving to discover the right path is ongoing. Granting, in any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing.

If you wait for the perfect moment likely, it might never arrive. Despite everything, fear is not a friend. We all discover things at different times.


Before I endured my inner peace, I lived my life for many years not knowing to have and enjoy inner peace is a choice.

For this reason, there were many ups and downs in my life which involved too many stressful situations to deal with, and because I decline to spend the time dealing with my issues, I was stuck in a world of confusion, questioning how peace could enter my life.

It seems as if I always had some form of chaos in my life or I've had friends that entailed a lot of drama. It was the kind of stuff that pulls at your emotions — In fact, it seemed as if the entire world was filled with negative things.

The nasty, ugly stuff you read about in the newspaper, watched on the news or heard about from the people you know.

Looking back on my days of emotional drama, I believe I felt that it was necessary and of the essence. Moreover, before things got better and I learn better, I struggled with moods that influence more suffering. And things didn't get better because I thought it was okay to fight my feelings, but I learn that did not “fix” the problem.

Also, there were days when I believed emotions made me feel genuine and allowed me to offer to understand everyone else. But, despite all I think it provided, I did not encounter benefit from it.

Therefore, I desired not to be so emotional. I needed to be free from all the pain — as a result, over the years, I have gradually disassociated from people who brought relentless drama into my life.

I felt a desperate need to stop the negativity it brought in my life. I felt tired and ready to rid all negativity from my life which led me to discover a more peaceful way to live, despite the many struggles in my life.

After I come to the realization there is a lot of negative energy and stupidity in this world; I can view the world from a 'realistic' standpoint.

Furthermore, if I conditioned myself to believe that whatever can go wrong, will and whatever can go right, apparently will I am grateful for what is and my intention comes from the deepest part of me.

I can attract more and more positive energy into my life to gain knowledge of how to live with inner peace.

Also, as soon as I started to think there is something not right and made some changes, peace comes from making changes inside me.

What is more, peace of mind is not the absence of conflict; differences will always be there. Finding peace within is a beautiful but also a challenging thing.

Beside, enduring peace begins and continues through expanding more aware of who you are, altering the way you think, and enduring life as it is.
