    Default What about yourself do you seek to revise?

    I am currently working on controlling my preoccupation with my faults and in place of that preoccupation, fostering a healthy self-image; in doing this, I am reducing my anxiety. I am learning to recognise negative thoughts immediately, and to replace them with positive action, because negativity raises my blood pressure and makes me nonproductive and destructive at worst. This is getting much easier for me... over the past few months I have felt more balanced than ever, and I think that my effort to be more of a positive person has paid off by becoming almost second-nature.

    Trying to work on befriending my anxiety. On Sunday night I imagined my anxiety to be a person that I've been an asshole to for way too long. I started crying a little and decided I was going to make a real effort to make friends with this guy. At the end of the night I started to see how it's really me who has the problem, not so much him. Anyway, we're hanging out tomorrow and getting frozen yogurt.

    Indecision- I can't help but to see the positives and negatives of all of the options presented and this leads me to have a bit too much difficulty in choosing which one is the best pick.

    As I mention somewhere in an INFJ Enneagram thread, I am really working on my tendency to be a silent (and sometimes not so silent) drama queen. I thought I was above all that, and then I found that my opinions and emotions are quite histrionic.

    Not worry so much about what others think, and not blow small things out of proportion.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    To achieve self-sustaining income and perhaps have means left over to contribute to support family.

    And I would like to lose five pounds and take vitamins and eat jello to procure better hair. Mine is really fine and somewhat curly which makes it wispy and fuzzy. I'm like a friggin fraggle.



    Actually it might be a more realistic goal to attempt to more perfectly resemble the fraggle.

    Good for you Dana, I'm happy for you.

    Admittedly, it took years of observation and experience, while remaining objective, to see that the world is pretty much balanced between postive/negative. It also took reevaluating my somewhat stubborn view of "reality" and "safety" in it. Thus, I made a decision some time ago to focus on the positive aspects for the comfort and peace they bring. That doesn't mean I ignore the negative. I will address it when necessary. I never forget it exists in equal measure. I just choose not to focus on it. And, you're so right, doing that affects all areas of my life. Like attracts like... I choose for that to be positive.

    Believe... I need to work on believing... myself among other things. I've been a leaf travelling wherever the river takes me for far too long.

    Nothing. I seek to accept.


    Namaste,
