There is great power in deciding not to react.
To stay quiet instead of speaking.
To allow your silence to speak for you.
To turning your face into a blank canvas, keeping your gaze indifferent to the chaos surrounding you.
I’ve seriously been working on trying to keep my emotions from taking over my life, because I’ve been allowing precisely that since I was a kid. It’s no easy task either, since I’m an empath and naturally fucking programmed to this specific behavior. It seems the more that I get worked up over something, the harder it is to stop myself from having a full-blown anxiety attack.
The goal is to not get to that point of no return.
Or more simply put, you gotta check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Because too much emotion is bad for your health.
