“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.” – John F. Kennedy
I believe there is a necessity to commit to inner peace. The uncontrollable reality in this world produces chaos and disrupts your peace. When you have inner peace, you have stability. I know people who jump from relationship to relationship in search of happiness or stability only to find out that you can never find inner peace from anyone else but God and yourself.
Your peace can never be found in any tangible thing because nothing and no one is perfect. Your job can disappoint you. Your family can turn their backs on you. Your partner can hurt you. Life is filled with disappointment and you tend to have little to no control over what happens to you. However, you have control over what you allow to disrupt your sanity. You have control over your life and your choices. Understanding this gives you the power to hold on to inner peace.
Regardless of whether you’re single or in a relationship, always strive to maintain your inner peace. This allows you to have discernment and happiness no matter the season you find yourself. I’ve been in good and bad relationships and through it all, I’ve always maintained my balance by the grace of God and my devotion to my inner peace. My happiness has never been in the performance of my partner but rather in my commitment to God and my pursuit to becoming the best version of my self.

Here Are Four Gems I Believe Will Help You Stay Committed To Inner Peace:
- Put God first: I have never been a perfect Christian but, I strive to live my life according to the love and grace of God. I accept His love, forgiveness and peace. When I put God first in my life, everything else becomes secondary. Therefore, no matter what I’m going through, I can always rest in God because I know He is the ultimate source of my happiness and freedom.
- Place Boundaries: People will go as far as you let them. If you allow everyone and everything to have access to your innermost parts of you, you will remain in a constant state of chaos. Don’t let other people’s burdens, words or insecurities affect your peace. It’s okay to love from afar and take care of you.
- Make Time For Yourself: Do you sometimes feel like you’re just existing in a routine that makes you numb to your feelings, emotions or your current reality? You just might need to create more time for you. It’s hard to have inner peace when you do not spend time alone to reflect or time to live. In order for you to become the best version of yourself, you have to take the time to learn and grow.
- Extend Love And Kindness: Be kind and loving towards yourself. No matter what errors, failures or disappointment you have or are currently experiencing, always make sure you give yourself grace. When you carry guilt and unforgiveness, you disrupt your peace. Just let go and feel the peace you seek.
