We need to talk about this season, because the hard truth for me and many other people is that it can lead to really emotionally tough times. At least it does for me and this is how I handle that.
Today honestly is going to be a challenge for me personally. I normally don't spend Thanksgiving with family (even though I love them) often it's easier for me to love them from afar. My family includes arguments, drama, and the grit of life and often when with family I feel like I’m the very worst version of myself.
I’m asking myself if my phone is useful and bringing joy and enrichment or is it disconnecting me? I know when I mindlessly use it, I’m actually disconnecting myself from what’s truly important instead of using it as a tool to connect intentionally with the world around me. I’m actively taking steps to become less reliant on my cell phone.
