Day 6 My Big Ego

    Even though I have been journaling sporadically for more than 6 days, this is my 6th post, so I'm calling it day 6. I find that when I write about troubling emotions, I ask myself: ".....and then what would happen?......and then what would happen?......and then what would happen?" over and over. It leads me to some real answers about why I fret and worry so much or get so upset about things. It always leads me back my self image, my persona.....it's about saving face. If I ask what's the worst thing that could happen, it's not about being homeless, being penniless, or cold and hungry, it's about what would people think of me if I was that big of a loser. My gosh, I waste so much energy keeping up appearances. I haven't got it all sorted out yet, but I'm getting there.
