Guarding my peace

I’ve learned to guard my peace. I have to disconnect to process everything going on. My mental illness doesn’t allow me to rationalize within the moment at times so it’s best for me to distance to regroup. The amount of saturation of unrest in the world leads to increased anxious, may trigger a mixed episode, and may dig deeper into a depression. It’s important to maintain what I can control.

  1. This is part of mindfulness, stepping back and observing what is happening inside of you and in your environment without judging or evaluating. My mental illness doesn’t always allow me to rationalize in the moment either, so I have began working on this kind of thing too, working to be more mindful.
