Default Re: Over active conscience.

Even in making this post, I'm anxious.

Similar to JT, I don't think I can put myself into only one of them. I can be all four. And like Mars, it's not I can't tell the difference between wrong and right, I know I am aware.

If you mean self destructive thoughts; cheating on tests (I have done before). I think I'm bad, I hate myself, I don't deserve reward, I deserve punishment.

I think conscience has a big impact on anxiety, and that anxiety can also impact our conscience and what we choose to do. Perhaps if we always reaffirm to ourselves our core values we might be able to make the right choices for us and the people around us based on those values, and to reduce anxiety to a level we can handle better. So that when we make choices, we are clear on why we make them.
