Deep Thought

I’ve been thinking about how I try to help others by trying to encourage positivity. This skill was not one I was born with. It was one I acquired through life experiences and great friendships. I know that not everyone or every situation requires that kind of advice but I think, at times, maybe that’s the only way I can help.

I do want to break some things down though because I know that lots of people who teach about positivity or kindness even, don’t provide that sense of authenticity. I mean, I remember hearing and reading lots of  movies or books on positivity and aspiring to live my daily life as a super positive person but then feeling like crap if I woke up one day feeling blah. Or if I got aggravated by something the kids were doing and I yelled at them. Or if I was seeing the silver lining around a particular situation and then let it bring me down. I almost felt like I was failing at being positive. I was upset at myself for having natural feelings.

What I think a lot of people don’t tell you is that it’s ok to have a breakdown every once and awhile. There are times that I feel bad for feeling or acting a certain way but then I remind myself that it’s ok, these feelings are normal and my meltdowns are just a component of who I am but they are not here to dominate me, they’re here to allow me to express myself in any way I see fit. So I guess what I’m saying is that positive thinking should be incorporated into everyone’s life as a bonus and as a way to help us get through any tough times but it’s not meant for us to be slaves to it either.

I’m going through a very tough time right now and though I am positive my situation will improve it doesn’t stop me from worrying a little. It’s actually kind of confusing sometimes, knowing that everything is going to work out yet worrying about the “what if it doesn’t?” part. Well I’m rambling on again but I really needed to let these thoughts out of my head and maybe now that their out of there I can worry a little less.

Thanks for reading.

    Hope that letting your toughts out helped. It can be extremely confusing and scary when you know you should have faith, hope, strength and all that good stuff but still a tiny part of us worry. Maybe it is part of the dichotomy that helps us see and understand the faith part. So my prayers and thoughts and all good things are sent your way.
