Day 48

What makes you nervous?

  • Change. Change in routine, change in location, change in people’s character/personalities (negatively). I believe fear also makes me nervous, fear of failure, fear of challenges/obstacles & having to teach myself to overcome them, fear of unknown(s), fear of the future (not know what will come of mine), fear of new relationships & friendships (not knowing how the person(s) will turn out), fear of disappointing others, fear of making a mistake that could lead to greater consequences.

Day 47

Are you a nervous person? why do you think this is?

Day 39

Do you have mood swings, what do you think causes them?

  • Yes I do have mood swings. I believe what causes my mood swings: lack of sleep, hormonal changes due to my period, depression, the season (winter/cold months), being around people/person whom I don’t like, being hungry and my anxiety. 
Do you have mood swings? if so, what causes your mood swings? I know many people will go as far to say that it could be a sign of bipolar — but I haven’t spoken with a specialist to say whether or not I suffer from bipolar.

Day 26

Are you easily frustrated? what is it that frustrates you?

  • Yes, I can be easily frustrated when I am overwhelmed or stressed out. Many times the thing that frustrates me is when I am struggling to understand a concept or math equation & I keep trying to process the steps, but can’t get the formula down or understand the concept. Another frustration is when I am being sarcastic and it ends up offending someone, so I apologize but they don’t seem forgiving (even after saying “it’s okay”) because it makes me feel bad and I become frustrated with myself. 
  • Also, I get frustrated when people are running late or when I am running late. 
Are you the type or be easily frustrated, if so, what are some things that can cause you frustration?

Day 23

Who or what keeps you calm?

  • In a perfect world, it would have been meditation but since I haven’t done that in awhile — oops! It would have to be my self control, knowing how to shut off and focus on breathing and allowing myself to relax — not always easy, but it helps when I have music as well and I can tune out certain thoughts or just listen to a song and really get involved with the lyrics. 
What keeps all of you calm, or who?
