The balance between passion and sanity

Sunday, December 29, 2013

I have issues about which I'm passionate. I can't sit quietly and pretend I'm not. But then out come the crazies. The stress kicks in. I'm stressed if I stay quiet. I'm stressed if I speak out. It's not good for my health!

How do I find the balance?

    I've found that writing them down is a big help. That takes some of the immediate sting out of the stress and helps me deal with it in a calmer frame of mind. Perhaps you could write about them on here? All crazy ranting allowed on here!

    Vent to those you know are safe to vent to, and journal the feelings that you have to tuck away. Journaling is a wonderful release.

    emoticon Stress is never good. I'm passionate about a lot of things too. Do the "crazies" come out when people disagree with your point of view? That used to stress me. Then I learned that it's best to agree to disagree when there's no chance of a reasonable discussion between passionate people with opposing opinions. You can make a difference by becoming involved with groups that share your passions.

    I suspect it comes in the expressing of the feelings and then going over them and seeing the practical way of dealing with them.

Incidentally, if you want to write private things only you can see, you can use the Today's Fitness Notes on the Fitness Tracker page to write a private journal for you to see and review later.
