Utilizing Bowen Theory
Having been a student of Bowen Theory Education Center for the past three years, I realize I am increasingly aware of my own anxiety. This morning, in particular, I am aware my increased anxiety is from knowing, yesterday, I reacted in a situation rather than responded - not just one situation, but several (I guess anxiety left unchecked will snowball). Fortunately, time and sleep do serve to calm anxiety and my thinking is coming into balance with my emotions. In fact, I recognize my "automatic" (understood through the concept of multi-generational transmission process) was interfering with my ability to properly evaluate yesterday. Once I realized that, my anxiety neutralized because I know I have a choice to do something different, and, that I will do.
