"Chasing Life" is the name of an ABC Family show that airs on Monday nights. It is about a young woman who is struggling with cancer. It sounds like a good show, but I have no idea what the episodes are about. I was watching the "Hunger Games" last night and the promo for the show came on. The main character is a reporter named April who was doing a piece on a baseball player. A woman is having an affair with probably the baseball player named Richie Miranda. I am tempted to do research on this show and just get it over it. The real story is that it doesn't matter but to the "persona" it does. " Why did she have an affair? Was it with Richie Miranda? Who is her husband? How could she do that? I don't understand how a woman could cheat like that. " I am here to write that if I were to "give in" then I would be temporarily relieved, but will end up feeling guilty and the thought would return...still. If I were to remain anxious, then it means that I did not give in and I will feel proud of myself for not "giving in". Writing this is my way to cope. I tend to give in because it relieves the anxiety associated with the existing thought.
