Inner peace is revealed when the inner war ends and when you stop looking outside yourself for solutions to your problems. Peace, love and happiness is not somewhere “out there”. Take your focus off the external world and instead focus your attention inwards.
It is not uncommon for someone to be a self-saboteur and compound that by also having a victim mentality. It is as though they are holding their own breath and then blaming others for their inability to breathe. If they can break free from this cycle, everything in their life changes for the better.

Most of us live in a permanent state of resistance. Always trying to be somewhere else and avoiding what is currently going on right now. But we must remember that the present moment is all there is and it is our creation. So we must dive deep into it, embrace it, love it and accept all it contains. Stop trying to be somewhere else and just BE HERE.
