I have something to admit, that I am very weak in this regard. When I'm in town I constantly feel threatened and paranoid, like everyone is a potential threat, every car could potentially run me over, etc. I find myself playing out situations in my mind of violent defence and attack... I'm tired of it, this is not normal. I feel a bit like an ape or some kind of beast in the wild.
I believe this has a lot to do with a trauma I suffered in a past life and it seems too much to overcome using my own resources. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to overcome hate, anger, vengeance. I would like to respect all persons but feel too weak to show anyone any love. It's an unpleasant way to live and I would like to do things a bit differently from now on; would appreciate any ideas.
