Effect on Emotions

  • Things upset me, but I recognize that and I do something about it. I have a lot of strategies to keep myself from ever reaching a point of where the anger is even remotely out of control.
  • If I get too angry, my body's not used to the chemical changes that go on when you get angry. I hurt for about a day. My head hurts, I'm on edge, and I feel pain.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • When you pay attention to your breathing, your body's going to force you to do it. You can't choke yourself out, right, or hold your breath into oblivion. Calmly use it to put your mind on something.
  • You always have your breath and your heart beat, which is kinda related, and that's another automatic system you can put your mind on.

Bullying Story

  • Abuse and picking on the little guy bothers me so much. The only time I ever got in trouble in the military, I watched an officer use his rank to kinda get in front of some people. That bugged me to no end. It took a lot of energy.
  • I knew that was a battle that would end badly and would probably cost me.
  • I hate when people are picked on who are not strong enough to defend themselves. It think it comes from being a competitor.
