Looking back at such experiences we often realize they weren't nearly as bad as they seemed. In fact, sometimes they even turned out to have a lot of benefits, yet at the time they seemed like disasters.
If you feel emotional discomfort about social situations, interactions with others, or being evaluated or judged by others, you may have "social anxiety" -- a problem shared by almost 20 million others in the United States.
You can make massive positive changes in your life -- such as taking actions you were afraid to take and ridding yourself of such negative feelings as anxiety and anger -- by eliminating your limiting beliefs.
At that point I realized that beliefs weren't the only cause of our feelings and that stimuli could be conditioned to cause emotions, such as being told what to do causing anger and not living up to expectations causing anxiety.
In order for anything to exist, it must be distinguished from everything else. If no distinction is made between a specific thing and everything else, then there is only an undifferentiated everything -- which is another way of saying nothing.
Bragging isn't bad, and it isn't wrong. It's merely the inevitable result of certain beliefs. It's not the bragging that you want to get rid of; it's the beliefs that have you brag to get the approval of others to feel okay about yourself.
