Know when to retreat and back down when confrontation will not serve you.

When you’re dealing with conflict and need to back down, let Opossum be your guide. Do not let fiery emotions cloud your judgement and decision making abilities when calm and rational action is needed. While it is necessary to honor the feelings invoked by anger and frustration, it is also necessary to let those feelings settle before acting on them. Anger is an important energy that helps us to take action and make important changes in life. Opossum is very good at knowing when to retreat when there is too much chaotic energy. Let this be a reminder to take a deep breath and surrender to the feelings rather than act on them. Ask yourself what lessons they teach you and what mistakes you wish to avoid in the future. You can take your power back through self control and backing down when it is best to cut your losses and move on.
