Our first instinct in the midst of hardship is often to try and fix it from within. We feel as if we have to be fighting in the trenches in order to solve our problems. I use to be one of those people, but not anymore. You see, the more mindful I become the more I notice how crucially devoid of logic I am during conflict. On the flipside, giving myself space allows clarity to emerge and with it, better judgment and better choices.
