Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn't measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It's not winning battles that makes you happy, but it's how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.

"Victory means temporary peace, but Peace is eternity's victory." - Sri Chinmoy
A wonderful quote, Misbah. We do need to avoid conflict wherever possible, and if it can’t be avoided then choose our battles wisely. But it is better to be a warrior than a worrier.
I love the quotation that you've shared, Misbah. Looking into a better direction is excellent advice except when facing very important battles, as the quote says.
I was just thinking about this one last night.
There are times we face moments all alone.
Especially when one is faced with his knowledge of impending death..no one else can be there with him.
It is something he must face alone.
Yet everyday we take so much for granted as we battle things in life that make no sense.
Choose each battle wisely & know when to look in a different direction.
Thank you, Bredz, for sharing your beautiful thoughts with me. I also liked this quote. It is important for us to decide whether the battle we are about to fight is worthwhile or not. Caution, I believe, is always better than a regret.
Blessings and Love to you!!
War is inevitable and abundantly existing in the path of life. But choosing what battle to take is an engaging choice. Sometimes we have to select the bitter war believing that the better outcome will come from it, just like choosing a bitter melon for its health benefits than its bitter taste.
