Dissociation – Checking out means missing out

Dissociation as a coping mechanism… a great blog post

The human brain has a safety switch that gets engaged by traumatic exposure and experiences. It’s similar to being in shock but we remain there until it’s long over. We detach. We create degrees of separation between ourselves and what we feel, think, perceive, and ultimately, this impacts not only our worldview but also our perception of self.

Clinically, this is called “Dissociation.”
