I Admire People Who Can Keep Calm

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,116 People

    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.

    I wish I was better at staying calm.

    You really can't think clearly and act effectively if you get panicky and upset.

    If we defend us we get jailed.

    If we dont we get bullied. How to stay calm during such lunacy. Daily lunacy. Not civilized society. Moronic oppression.

    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...

    I guess the only people I know

    who can control themselves are some of my cousins, my girlfriend and myself... And other people... I don't know I can't remember. But if you try keeping your true feelings in, it may not end well... I almost lost it a few times.. But I should work on balancing it out....

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Calm BombFor me there is a difference between

    being calm and holding in your emotions. I know what it is, but I still manage to do both. And when I see people who flip-out and crash n' burn it's tells me they're easy targets for people who can get around the aggressive barrier ( me :D ) and that they're unstable and...
