Deciding to Keep the Peace

My sisters and I were at a reunion, and these girls came up to us. They were infuriated about an “LOL” comment we posted on social media, so they started fighting with my sisters. After the fight was over, they asked people where we lived — they were hoping to fight some more. I don’t know what it is. I think girls are jealous of one another, and this creates conflict. I have always tried to handle conflict the right way.

When I changed my life around, I decided that I wanted to keep peace. When you try to live your life the right way, people will try to break you. If you don’t teach your children to do the right thing, they never will. I tell my kids to behave properly and expect my girls to behave like ladies. I also believe in good communication and talking about conflict before fighting.

I always turn close to God, because I do not want to go back to the person that I was.
