Feelings of anxiety can compel you to behave reactively. You may become easily angered or frustrated when life seems to fail to meet your expectations as old, unconscious patterns emerge in your mind, thus, compelling you to have strong emotions.
Do you sometimes sense that your emotions are running ahead of you? A sense that your thoughts are subject to your heart and your intellect is lagging behind. You might seem compelled to act compulsively without regard to the consequences.
