4 minutes? That's well.. A bit of a.. crappy thing.. to do
I check myself every moment, and I always try to see the good in someone. Also, when your life is improved, no more stress and all, and suddenly something happens and you completely freak out. Your life is destroyed.
Let's say your parents are slaughtered in front of your eyes . After that you will get into a depression, and, it will seem even tougher and meaner then when you lived a 'normal' (forgive me for the definition) life.
To prevent is better then to heal..
Empathy~ How to limit contact and connection with others.
For me it is a constant balance to fight for.
So to keep things in balance I walk away from everyone and everything every hour to do a self check and some fresh air.
It is prevention and letting go and knowing where you stop and I begin. I make myself very aware of that by the hour, and I get 'self' out of it
Maintenance and prevention and cutting all connections to others
while making myself focus on nature and not anything inside my house or on the computer or phone. I believe fully in this as a balancing tool.
if I dont do this I get to cluttered with other peoples stuff. I am saying be active by the hour at separating what is you and what is others. Taking time to cut all connections empathically and be with only yourself. It teaches you also to be able to know what is you and what is not more skillfully.
The benifits are wide variety, and are good for an empaths balance.
As far as the second comment you made.."Let's say your parents are slaughtered in front of your eyes
. After that you will get into a depression, and, it will seem even tougher and meaner then when you lived a 'normal' (forgive me for the definition) life"
What about it? That is how I grew up so whats the point?
