    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...

    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...

    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.

    I wish I was better at staying calm.

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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.
