I admit it! I live in my head.
It’s fairly common for hermits — I mean people with “rich inner lives.” So, when I’m reliving some annoying memory or imagining what I should have said or done in an upsetting situation over and over, I’m exchanging my peace for torment.
Who wants torment? Not me! So, I’m practicing guarding my peace.
