Over the last month or so, I have been surrounded by devastating news. I have witnessed some tragedies and seen people in so much pain. I believe that with pain, there is a window for darkness. That darkness has to power to drown and devour you. However with pain, there is a greater appreciation for joy that comes from getting out. But some of us are not all capable of getting out alone or in time, before we are devoured.
Life has its ways of just shaking you up and it’s not always pleasant. I know that in my life, I have had my own experience with depression dating back as far as elementary school. Of course, I didn’t know it was depression back then but I know now how serious it was. However, I am grateful that I was offered different avenues to keep my mental and emotional health intact. Some of these opportunities or ideas were not intentional but they still helped. So here are my 7 ways to help protect your peace.
All these are techniques I have acquired over my 25 years of life. Not everyone will agree, be at this point and/or may be further. It’s a process. Work towards finding what brings you peace and then master what helps you protect what you’ve found.
