Be careful what you say when you use, “I am…” Such as “I’m sick” or “I’m angry,” or “I’m feeling upset.” Whatever you say after “I am,” you’re identifying yourself with. In other words, you are claiming it as something you choose to have in your life. When you want to state how you’re feeling, you can say something like, “I feel…” This lets your subconscious know that it’s transitory, not a permanent state for you. Be aware of what you’re pairing with “I am..” and find another way to state it that recognizes that it’s not permanent condition, but rather a situation that you’re dealing with.
