You know I’m all over attracting positive energy, but we all got these periods when things are going a bit more complicated. It feels like I’m on the edge of such a period. I’m glad to be conscious about it, so I can put a stop on it. I believe we all can control the way we are feeling, independent of occurrences. Of course I’m not speaking of situations which are traumatically bad. But in the end, whatever happens, it’s all about how you’re dealing certain circumstances. Don’t you think that difficulties are a lot easier to handle when you are positive (and have been positive a while) before the complication occurred? What I’m trying to say is: we do have a choice in how we feel.
Personally, I think that opposing against complications, with all its consequences like crankiness and frustrations, will only make things worse. I don’t wanna sounds like a psychologist, but want to share my vision on what to do in such a situation, to prevent ending up in a negative, vicious circle. I think we need to surrender, and accept the difficult things that happened. It can be really hard to accept things which have gone unfair.. and unjust. But I think we have to see things the other way around. We should rather look at how easily we can accept (unfair) things, than look at how good we are in fighting it, and holding on to the anger. I believe there is this moment in every situation- in which you can choose to get frustrated or emotional, or quietly look at it with a relax mind. It’s just a little moment, but you can train yourself to become more and more conscious of that moment. I’m trying to train myself in it, with the aim to solve problems in a more calm way.
Would love to hear your opinion on this subject!
