What is beef?
You may be thinking to yourself, Vandie, I know what beef is. But we're not talking about that kind of beef. Not that beef that is part of your juicy steak, or your scrumptious ribs. Whether or not it's good for you is a topic for another day.
The kind of beef we're talking about is the one where you have a problem with someone. The kind where if you see this person on the streets, you may look them up and down and give them the stink eye. The kind of beef where you secretly hope that person doesn't pay attention to where they're walking and bust their face so you laugh at them.
That kind of beef.
When you have an agreement or disagreement with someone and you can't stand the sight of their face.
Man! When it's put that way, then beef is bad for you.
Make no mistake about it, this kind of beef is not good for your health. We discuss spiritual, emotional, mental, and our physical fitness (SEMP Fitness), and this kind of beef is detrimental to every single one of those aspects.
This kind of beef drains your energy. It tugs on your spirit. It weighs down your mind. It wastes your time. Time that could be spent focusing on more productive things. Especially because most of the time, this beef is petty. Something that could easily be resolved between you and the other person if you just talk it out.
Don't believe me? Just try it. Try to talk it out and communicate whatever argument or disagreement you may have. Chances are it could have all been a misunderstanding that could have been avoided through a simple conversation.
Maybe some of that stress that you are experiencing each day is due to a grudge that you are harboring. You think about it constantly throughout the day. And when you think about it you get angry all over again.
It's not worth your health and well-being. It may be time to let it go.
While you have the opportunity to make amends, you should take advantage of it.
Let go of the beef.
