3 Steps to Self Control for werewolves
I saw a recent comment to werewolves encouraging them to learn self-control – to gain control over your emotions and desires. This is a great piece of advice. Werewolves need to learn the steps to self control so that they can function in the human world without revealing themselves for who they are. It can be all too easy to reveal yourself by having your temper flare up at the wrong time, or losing your focus and shifting at the wrong time. The result could mean humans hunting you…
Self control – learning to control your impulses and first instincts are extremely important to the werewolf.
1. The first step in self-control is identifing where you lack control. This can be a very difficult thing to do because it is not always easy to acknowledge where you may need help. Pride and ego often get in the way trying to convince you you have no problem. Set those two emotions aside and look really carefully inwards. Identify the area you just can’t seem to handle. If you cannot find it, seek the advise of someone close to you and knows that you’re a werewolf. Those that know you also know the situations in which you lose your temper.
2. Identify your trigger. Now that you know where you lack self-control, what is triggering it? Is it an action that you or someone else does that triggers it? Is it a specific human, werewolf, or vampire? What causes you to lose control??
3. Once you’ve identified your trigger, take action through self-denial! Break your habits! You know where you lose it, you know what causes it, the next step although the easiest to say is the hardest to do…take steps to change your reaction! You must deny yourself the luxury of reacting how you want to. Break the habits that cause you to lose control!
Understand that you cannot live as a werewolf without control. There are too many dangers in today’s human world, and you can’t afford for yourself to be contributing as one of those dangers.
