|Art : Khaled Akil|
"Detaching from our emotional responses encourages an objective perspective about our challenges.
Our oversensitivity to difficulties is usually caused by our emotional investment in a particular outcome.
By choosing instead to step back from our emotions, we give ourselves the ability to remain impartial to the unsettling events in our lives.
While we may still feel concerned, interested, and connected to our life circumstances, we are no longer controlled by them.
This new, objective perspective gives us the freedom and courage to embrace a peace-oriented state of mind
that cannot help but have a positive effect in every aspect of our lives.
Stepping back from your emotional attachments can give you the objectivity to make wiser choices."
