    It Is A Virtue, Really.

    It has come to my attention over the last few years how terribly uncontrollable my emotions are. I could rack it up to being an Arian, the typical hard-headed, stubborn, fire riddled girl born under the Sun, but unfortunately I have a feeling it's not all that easily explained...

    It Was A Tough Lesson To Learn For Me.

    I was a very angry teen but I discovered my reason for the frustration and anger I learned to channel my anger but couldn't shake it. I was in my 20's when I finally learned the way to keep calm was not to channel it but to learn a new way to get beyond the emotion. I took a...

    I'm usually a very calm person,

    and I handle stress pretty well. You'd think I'd be able to keep calm in an emergency, but I'm not so sure I can. Last year my toaster caught on fire, and I just started yelling "Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!" over and over again. I thought maybe that was a one time thing...

    See, I love people who are "collected"

    and "calm", because most of the time, they really aren't, but that also means that they care about what they look like to other people, and are self conscious about it. A good person never bothers another person with their worries unless they ask if you have had anything going...

    Sign Of Strength

    Calm, Despite It All (Story 99)

    I have always known my mom and dad to be calm. They never yelled or cursed. I never heard any yelling come from them. I am calm. I don't curse or yell. I don't argue, if it can't be resolved with a short debate, I leave it. I don't have to be right, if I'm right then I don't feel...

    I am calm under pressure.

    I am even toned and collected. Even if people are arguing with me, I don't reciprocate. I don't have that fire in me. Even if they scream at me, I don't feel like screaming back. It's not a good use of my energy so I walk away. I have other more productive things to do with my...

    I do admire people who can keep clam in pretty

    much every situation. I am someone who has a hard time keeping calm, I don't know if it is the anxiety, or the hot-headed-woman in me, but sometimes, I am just unable to keep clam, so I really do admire people who are able to keep calm.

    its up to you either you keep calm

    or being in hurry in worst conditions. i think if you are able to understand the situations you can manage it well but if you are not, you behave like a hurry person.
