DawnS Posted October 26, 2013 Share Posted October 26, 2013 I have experienced many changes in myself since sah, some of which are quite monumental (at least to me they are!). I was wondering if anyone else has noticed anything similar? If I was honest, some of the changes are so good that I have to say I prefer my life the way it is now. I'm not sure if some things are personality changes or just major shifts in perspective. I'd love to hear others' experiences or opinions? Firstly, I used to be rather an anxious person, bothered by what other people think. If someone nearby was in a mood, I would assume I had done something to cause it. These days, I notice the mood and think nothing of it. I used to get so very upset if I caused some road kill such as a rabbit that I may still be crying when arriving at work twelve miles later. This would be so bad, I'd beat myself up about it for a couple of days. A few weeks ago, I hit a rabbit and thought - oh, I've made an easy meal for some carrion eaters. a much more normal response I think, certainly less exhausting. I am no longer petrified of spiders and in fact can now sleep in a room where I know there is a large one lurking. I've even been known to pick one up and chuck it out the window. I am no longer terrified of the dentist, to the point where I have had lots of cosmetic work done which I've wanted for years but have been too afraid to be able to sit in the chair long enough. And my favourite - I can eat food as spicy as it can be made...yummm curry! Surely this one has to actually be a change in the brain? Spicy food has always caused me physical pain in my mouth. Why is it suddenly ok? There are many more, but I'll stop now as I could go on for pages. The general gist is that I have significantly less fear and anxiety now. Life is much more relaxing than it used to be and I see the funny side of things most of the time, what a relief! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
