Intenselee [Daily Prompt: Intense!]

Describe the last time you were surprised by the intensity of a feeling you had about something, or were surprised at how strongly you reacted to something you thought wouldn’t be a big deal.  Photographers, artists, poets: show us INTENSE.  via Daily Prompt: Intense!.

Intensity and Insanity… should have been one of my names.  The last time I had an intense feeling was probably within the last 10 minutes.  Unfortunately, any turbulence in my world triggers adrenaline, intensity and irrational thinking.

I have this problem with the phrase “take it with a grain of salt“.  I missed that lesson in school I guess because I seem to take things like a boulder is chasing me down a steep hill.  Why?  I have no idea.

I react very intensely to almost anything that puts a ripple in my water.  I guess you could say I am always on the defense, ready to defend and protect myself before I am even threatened.

Bottom line is, I would love to be less intense and more relaxed.

  1. I don’t know. I think that your intensity should be OK. Sort of like when people tell me that patience is a virtue. Why can’t “Hurry the fuck up!” be a virtue also? I say…find the balance and never compromise yourself for anything…or anyone.
