There are days I wish I were a peacemaker.
There are days when I manage to make peace.
Most days I am ready for battle at a moments notice, it’s right under the surface and in so many ways it’s my Achilles heel.
It is both a blessing and a curse. I’m blessed to be passionate, to be action driven, to always be ready to engage. However, the flip side to this coin can be damage to relationships, words said that can’t be unsaid and arguments that could have been simple discussions.
It’s getting better but it’s still there.
I am not a natural peacemaker, and I own that.
