Today let’s talk about Misery. Or rather let’s talk about getting out of the miserable vibe that may have us in its boney clasp, and move into a more positive space. We may all have a dark side, but let’s acknowledge it and move on…it can be done… we can be happy! Let’s explore this!
Share the Misery…misery loves company… laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone.
It’s not a very positive thing, but isn’t it amazing that sometimes when you feel bad, you might want everybody else to feel bad to? So you start grumbling, you wear a long face, you give everybody dirty looks.
What good does that do? It’s great to share your feelings, but sometimes its best to just keep them to yourself.
If you have a friend or someone that you can talk over your situation with then that’s good. It’s a way to let go of the negative feelings. That’s the positive way of sharing your misery.
I’m not talking about feeling sad. But at other times we just have a negative dark aura energy about us. We all have a dark side and sometimes that dark side just wants to take over.
And you know we get more of what we put out, so that just starts the downward sad cycle, and the one who suffers is us, not our target.
However sometimes our target is ourselves. We get engaged in a pity party and we just can’t seem to stop attacking and putting ourselves down.
How in the heck do we get out of it. How do we pull ourselves out of the muck and mire?
Awareness! Awareness is the key. We have to stop, we have to thank those negative feelings, and tell ourselves it is time to move on.
Then do something physical to break the spell. Take a walk. Listen to the radio or a podcast, read a book. Just do something to change your mind, to change your energy, to change your aura.
Even breathing… taking some deep breaths.
Then come into awareness of your situation. Try to distance yourself from your feelings. Ask yourself what is wrong with the situation and how can I change it now. Even if you can only make a small action, what is that action which you can do to change your energy and lift yourself.
If the cause is some someone else, how can you be at peace with the situation.
How can you make a plan to maintain your equilibrium at this point in time even if you have to make a change at some point in the future.
Misery hurts. It hurts the people that you direct it at and it hurts yourself, your health, your mind, your body, your energy.
You’ve got to break free, and you’ve got to do it as soon as you become aware that you are in that cycle.
I’ve been there and it doesn’t feel good at all. But as soon as I can, I bring my conscious mind to an awareness of what is going on and thus I can change it and lift my mind and energy.
Let’s share! How do you get yourself out of a funky mood and not spread it around.
