“If It Costs You Your Peace, It’s Too Expensive”

“If it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive.”


Below, Dominique, our Project Assistant, explains what this quote means to her:

This is a quote that I have always held close to my heart. I often repeat this to myself when I’m struggling because I know it’s true. Your peace is your birthright. It’s not something that you should ever have to work for. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your peace for anything. It has more value than you’ll ever know and if giving it up is the price you must pay, don’t do it. We often place value on material objects instead of the non-physical things in our lives. We never consider the value of our emotions, our peace and sometimes, even more.

I’ve always struggled with placing value on the things that mattered to me. I spent more time worrying about the clothes I wore, how my hair looked and what people thought of me than I did worrying about what brought me peace. I wasted so much of time worrying about stuff like that when I should have been worrying about my peace. Those things wouldn’t matter in the end, what would matter is whether I lived a life full of peace.

Not sacrificing my peace for anything is something that I wish I had learned earlier in life. I wouldn’t have sacrificed my peace as often as I did if I knew it was that important. It is okay to protect your peace even if it feels like it might not be. Your peace is yours, not anyone else’s. You should protect it at all costs.
