He knew he wasn’t the type to beat his wife, he was more the throwing up kind of man. That didn’t make him a weaker person, or did it? Focus, he told himself. He had read all the books about not worrying about the future and to stay in the present, but he could not still his mind.

Nervous minds like the one briefly described in the paragraph above, occur in people all over the world. Usually they are produced by people who are more concerned about their own lives and they continuously worry about the future. That would make them a person with a high degree of the Will to Survive Instinct. They are so worried about their own existence that they can’t think of anyone else. It might help him to think that his mind was being controlled by his large Will to Survive instinct and that he should try to be more giving and charitable. (I am not saying this would be easy but we have to start somewhere.) By acknowledging to your conscious mind what instinct is motivating your actions and feelings in the moment we should be able to hold back bad decisions.
