Emotional capital is spent too freely.
The heart is not logical… Brainy from Supergirl
Anger is a strong emotion. Everyone should have the ability to express it without fear. It’s OK to be pissed off for personal reasons. It’s helpful to have people in your life who understand what you are going through and won’t think you are a freak. Anger ideally should be a seasonal thing. If it goes past that season then perhaps getting some help would be a good thing to do. The best thing one can do is to express it, let it out and not to stuff it in. Too many people will do that and it will impact their mental health for the long-term. People who love you will understand the reasons you feel the way you do.
Friends, I have been told I am a positive person and that is what people like about me. Here’s a little secret, I am not always a positive person. Some days I have my moments when I am cynical and kind of mad at stuff. Being a genuine person means being genuine about how you feel about things.
There will be times when I will rant and will share some of the negative things brewing in my head. Much of the time I am going to look at the bright side of things but sharing the dark stuff gives some balance and hopefully makes me more relatable to the person who isn’t feeling it today. It’s what you have when you are an idealist like me. Emotions are a strong thing and it requires balance.
Now I have to figure out how to be mad when it comes time to be mad. I am horrible at being mad just like I am horrible at being sick. It’s funny how this all works.
Always choose to be positive. Even when you aren’t feeling it. Everyone has a light they can shine. Pick positive, it’s good for the soul.
Emotions are a blessing and a curse. Feeling stuff makes us human and that can be awesome but it also can suck when it’s stuff we have to cope with. People are trying to get by and that makes it harder. Peace to you my friends in all the things you are going through.
Protect your enthusiasm from the negativity of others…H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
We live in a world where negativity permeates much of our lives and culture. From social media to traditional media we are bombarded with bad news. I think this wears on us and brings us down. Here in Chattanooga reaction to the shootings of Thursday has been very mixed. People have gone on Facebook and Twitter to share anguish and at times very venomous statements against Muslims, The President and the situation as a whole. The whole thing is very sad and has impacted people emotionally and mentally.
I am kind of sad about the whole thing. Anger won’t bring back the dead. But love can stop future situations. Paying attention to those who are in need could save more lives than you think. When a person is in need offer them help. Flip the whole situation around to give people hope.
My blog is a positive place I hope. I will share what I am feeling and sometimes it will not be all cheery and happy. However I want people to know how committed I am personally and as a blogger to giving us some hope, grace and love.
Be positive, it looks good on you.
