    Sign Of Strength

    spastic b*tches who get loud and run around all crazy like when they have a problem tend to annoy me. There's something to be said for those of us who deal with our sh*t in a collective, rational way. It shows that you depend on yourself for answers. It shows you don't put other...

    I wish I was better at staying calm.

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

    I admire people who can keep calm in stressful

    situations. Ever since I was a child I have reacted to stressful situations with very aggressive anger. I wish that I could react differently than how I do now. It would be nice to maintain a calm demeanor when I react to those situations. Anger for me never fixes the...

    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...

    Yes, so much can be said about being calm.

    People who are calm and are happy (and a joy to be around) is who I aspire to be like on a daily basis.

    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.

    As a child I freaked at oncoming storms.

    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.

    It Is A Virtue, Really.

    I'm not a yeller, it's just not in my genetic make up. Personally, I find people that yell: Obnoxious, rude, inconsiderate (as to what the harm of their words do), unnecessary, uncivil, undiplomatic and non-constructive. It's to say, right? Especially by me....someone who has no...

    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 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 have little to no time

    for people who fly off the handle for the smallest things. It shows a great deal of self restraint and maturity to stay calm in trying situations which I find very engaging.
