Swallow. Deep breathes. I am ok. No one can get to me unless I let them. No one can make me react to these illogical emotions. I am in control of my mind. I will not let it turn to irrationality. I will not let fear consume me. Every time I feel that heavy warmth in the pit of my stomach I push it down with all of my might. I will not let it win. I can control these animal instincts. Too proud to limp away and lick my wounds like an injured puppy. I am the master of my fate and to let these dark feelings take me would be giving up the keys of my life.
