Yes. We should be feeling happy all the time. Maybe it is easier said than done, but it is true. If you think about it, when bad things happen, it triggers our emotions at that moment and we automatically feel bad and sad about it. It is only natural our system process that way. But it is up to us to turn it around. Immediately too, if we want to.
Feeling bad about something that happened (yes, past-tense) won’t make you feel better. The only feeling you will cook up is basically the feeling of guilt and regret, and then hate that leads to anger – they tell you this in Star Wars you know.
When we get mad about something, usually, someone will get hurt physically or mentally. And these are the people that are close to us. Not everyone will put up with our emotions all the time certainly not fair to dump it onto others.
When we have a bad time/day, just give yourself a moment. Sit down. Reflect on what happened. Why did it happen? What could’ve happened? Is what just happened better off than something else? If yes, do you feel grateful?
Calm yourself and appreciate the things that are still positive around you. No use lamenting and kept circling around the matter if you can’t handle the emotions that come with it. Let go and relax about it. Feeling depressed and anxious will not solve or make it better. Really.
Follow the activities from the above image. Do something that pleases you and that can make you relaxed. While doing those things, something that you do less like watching the telly and hiding away from people around you will definitely make you more happy and sociable.
Have a happy weekend and remember, stay happy and let those around you live longer too! Hah!
