Emotions can change so quickly from one moment to another. Or maybe that isn’t normal but I’m sure I’m not alone here.
If only we were able to control how we felt every second of the day, being in charge of our emotions instead of them being in charge of us – then I would be able to be my true self. Or would that really be my true self? Would I only be wearing a mask the whole time?
I guess our negative emotions, our anxiety, our depression, our loneliness, they’re all part of what makes us, us! We can’t be happy, or positive, or feeling in control all the time. Sometimes you can wake up and feel lonely or insecure, and that’s okay too. It’s okay to not feel like the badass self that you’ve been feeling like for the past few days. It’s okay to sometimes overthink situations and not be the sane one for a few minutes. It’s okay to feel down. Just don’t let it get full control of yourself.
Your own happiness is yours to control. Analyse your negative feelings for what they are, let them help you figure out what’s important to you, and then act on what will make you happy again. It can be tough to figure out the right balance to make you the happiest every day, but you’ll get there (and the down moments are perfectly okay, so don’t beat yourself over it).
Let me know what you do to avoid the down moments in the comments please.
