Here is an interesting post by The Hypnotherapy Team Blog
considering excess and moderation.
We are not “bad” human beings for feeling anxious in front of conflict, for avoiding conflict or for trying to escape it. We are human, and those are human characteristics. We are fallible human beings, which means we do not know everything, we make mistakes, we get things wrong.
Each one of us have the capacity to monitor our own beliefs, emotions and behaviour, and decide if we like them or not, if those are beneficial to us at a particular time in our lives. We also have the capacity to modify those beliefs, emotions or behaviour, so that we can enjoy our lives at the potential we decide to do so. Our own physical and emotional balance may be at a different point to that of other people’s. As long as we do not interfere negatively in other people’s lives, we have the right to set our balance where we decide to do so. If our excesses do not affect negatively our life or the life of those around us, our relationships or profession, we may choose to continue living our life as we are. It is all a question of perception. But if we decide that it would be beneficial for us to change anything to do with our thoughts, beliefs, emotions or behaviour, then hypnotherapy can become a useful tool in order to achieve this change. The most important thing is that we are determined to achieve the change we desire.
