Capturing Your Personal Avatar

To feel like you are living the person you want to be in each role of your life it's important to know who that person is.  Then, you live, breathe, move, talk, and act from that image.  Which is why we do this exercise called your "Personal Avatar".  It's the image of who you see yourself to be.  

If you are constantly only giving to the needs and wants of others, what you have to offer the world can very quickly be misconstrued and forgotten because all of your time, effort, and energy is taken up, leaving no time to fulfill your greatest purposes.   If you represent yourself inaccurately in order to take care of others' WANTS,  sooner or later that very person with whom you have created the desired relationship will discover that you misrepresented yourself, and one or both of you end up feeling bad.

Why Feelings Were Villains and Why They're the Hope For Anxiety

We have ditched feelings because of trending popularity methods that teach that feelings lie and become exaggerated and that we shouldn't be ruled by emotions.  Certainly this can be true, once we get into our heads, feelings, which are meant to be indicators of discomfort for us, become exaggerated the more we think on them and the more negative vibration we put on them.  We respond then, with an over-exaggerated dose of REACTION rather than ACTION...usually of the variety that we regret later.  

See the problem isn't and never was the FEELING.  Feelings are natural normal tools and mechanisms that...
