    I've doing this program on and off for couple of months. So far, I have reached to day 18.

    In the section of "Question To Ponder", the question was what emotions are most prevalent in my journal entries?

    As I glanced over my journal entries, I am guessing that the most prevalent emotions that were shown up are:

    Lonliness, fear of failure, control (or the loss of control), sadness and anger, as the first three emotions are the most common.

    Thank you for letting me this forum to share it. I would be happy to hear your feedbacks, or what are the most common emotions that appear in your journal entries?

    Mine was anger, anger anger and rage!!! No wonder I was ill for over 20 years....! The program is so good at being able to point to what needs addressing. It took me a long time (6 months solidly) to find how to deal with all the anger and how to process anger now without repressing, or roaring like a shewolf at everyone..! But it has worked and I am able to be true to myself, am able to stand up for myself and process stuff that 'triggers' me.
    You cite loneliness and fear of failure and control - these can join together to affect you. When you fear failure you can resist doing things that might ease your loneliness in case 'it doesn't work' or 'you fail'. It is a powerful merry-go-round. Take a leap of faith - do something that might result in finding new friends. Frame it as a 'no fail' activity. Tell yourself that whatever happens you will take some good, some positive from the experience and move forward. I suffered much shyness as a kid, compounded by my family moving every 2 years, new school, new home, new everything. It still makes me cringe to walk into a room as the 'new' kid. But i make myself do it - march into that Tai Chi class, or lampshade-making workshop. Deep down I know I am no better and no worse than any other person - and nor are you... We are all valid human beings and deserve respect from others - and a whole lot of respect from ourselves!!
