Unlike Jessica, most things never get to me. I am told that it is due to my absurdly internal locus of control. I just do not allow my emotions to take over in that way.
When something bad happens, I allow a very brief time for it to bother me and then tell myself that I don’t like the feeling so I just stop feeling it. Done and done. I’ve even had plenty of people give me massages and comment on my lack of tension and knots. Happened last night actually.
If only I could teach it.
Also, I am in no way implying that I am better or worse of than others. Having that much control in one’s own head definitely has its cons. I merely read her post and realized how I am so different in that way. Not just Jess, but most people that I know.
Maybe I really am a mandroid?
