My wifi automatically softblocks itself

Hi, this has been a problem with me for quite sometime, out of nowhere my wifi suddenly softblocks itself, it is not due to power management I assume because my battery was at 40% and it automatically softblocked. I do not have my user in the rfkill group and I have no idea what causes it. Can someone please provide me some guidance, I’ll provide any output as desired

here is my journal output journal pastebin

also here is the output of systemctl list-unit-files --state=enabled
