How do you know when it’s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?

I seem to always wait until

The panic attacks me

Until the words that display my spirit

Go unnoticed just enough

To lead me down a hole of sorts

Until I find myself scrolling and feeling invisible

Until anxiety has taken me over

I tend to wait until I feel unworthy

Until I keep wondering how loud my voice is

“Have they heard me?”

I am learning to stop ignoring the signs

Of me getting lost inside my mind

Unplugging just enough to breathe for a second

And then I open apps to check for notifications.

Because: who am I without others noticing? I don’t even think anyone cares.

That is when I stop to unplug. I’ve come too far for that. We all must avoid the hole that only we will work to pull ourselves out of.

– signed,

a never ending work in progress

Thank you for viewing.
