“I’d essentially compartmentalized my life so I could be two different people for a while, but it hadn’t worked in the end.”
Psychology defines compartmentalization as a defense mechanism, or a coping strategy.
Compartmentalizing your life is like going to three parties in one night; it sounds like a good idea until you wake up exhausted and bitter the next morning.
If your life, hobby, family and passion are all very different things, maybe it is time to considering trying to consolidate them. Then, you will not suffer from the problems that come with a compartmentalized life.
Trying to keep balance in our life is vital. Time is all we have when we get down to it. Everything in our life will require time. If we neglect certain things in our life – especially our family – it will cloud our judgment, and we will feel guilty, whether we like it or not.
What would it be like to live in complete congruence? What would it feel like to have total alignment of purpose, with no separation, no partitions, and less disagreement and tension?
