Behavior is important when working through very complex parts of being human.
I am describing being able to express feelings, actions, thoughts, beliefs, and who we are on the regular basis.
A big part of being me is about knowing who I am.
There is a lot of awareness or noticing who I am to be the best I can be in the moment.
I’m not a sadist, vain, egotist, arrogant, belligerent or a bully.
But I get depressed, sad, sentimental, scared, afraid, tired, lonely, hungry (cravings, lustful, jealous, obsessive, and ashamed from time to time).
But, don’t we all.
I get happy, calm, bored, aloof, lazy, driven, motivated, anxious, lively, alert, clear, excited, sober, and abrupt.
I feel, think, accept, act, believe and maintain a decent state of awareness.
I struggle to be responsible in a balanced sort of way.
Therefore, I believe there is a great deal of anxiety generated from simple day to day struggles to maintain a healthy level of self -control.
So, I take every opportunity I can to deconstruct my state of anxiety to determine the best course in the moment.
I usually, journal, talk to myself, and think about the day.
I practice good habits each day.
A good one for my anxiety is to act on my best behavior whenever I am tired, lonely, hungry or angry.
I can usually control my feelings better by practicing good habits when my energy is high, moderate or low.
I tend to take things on when my energy is high or moderate but minimize my action when my energy is low.
I believe all my life is important in shaping me into a good life.
I believe in doing a good job with my ‘bad-self’.
I will always take care of myself, so I can live well and engage myself and others in a healthy way.
I guess I have been blessed with good people and support and a willingness to be a healthy person.
So, why all the hubbub about being ‘anxious’?
I want to embrace my anxiety and use this feeling to express self-control and doing no harm to myself and others.
I am learning to act in a responsible, loving way in all my affairs: living well is it’s own reward!
Best of luck to all those trying to do the same in their lives.
