EQ Revisited

Usually, for the most part, I can look back at my past and be thankful and grateful for all of it, good times and bad, for it has made me who I am today, and generally I'm pleased with who I am today. I recognize my faults, though, and constantly work to improve myself through education, new experiences and surrounding myself with the best people possible.

Sometimes, though, my baggage creeps out of my shadow and wallops me upside the head. I hate it when that happens. I hate it when I am unable to look at what is currently happening without viewing it all through the filter from my past, which is a pretty heavy filter and which can skew things pretty far.

This is getting back to that whole emotional intelligence thing, where if you're emotionally intelligent you're able to recognize your feelings as they happen, not afterwards, and you can regain some sense of control. You're not hijacked, so to speak, by emotion.

Yeah. I have to work on that.
