Looking for Something?
Things I Talk About
Total online: 1
I have decided to embrace my own happiness and no longer let the sadness linger.
I have learned that, in life, many of both come your way. You must be welcoming to both for they are guests.
But you must not allow the sadness or the happiness to extend their stay.
Rather, you must embrace the happiness warmly, feel the sadness when it leaves, but make the effort to contact again.
Why would you expect the happiness to come back when you don’t treat it as a friend?
So you must allow it in and make time for it.
You must do things you enjoy to do so. Talk with a friend. Read a book. Write a story. Run around your neighborhood. Complete a single task. Clean your desk off.
When you enjoy a friend’s company, do you let them fall by the wayside? Or do you make effort to keep in touch and add them on social media, posting about yourself and occasionally on their wall? Do you give them something and not expect something back?
That is how happiness works.
You should not fake happiness. That would be faking a friendship.
Embrace your emotions. Embrace them, but do not allow any touches to linger. Do not do so until you are sure that this one will be yours, in one fashion or another. Which will be your champion? Your partner? Your best friend? Your family?
Would you allow a stranger in, let them break you down, and let them stay in your home? That is all emotions are. Strangers knocking on your door. Strangers in the classroom or workplace. Strangers walking past on the street.
Emotions are human. They need to exist within you. Emotions are as mixed as we are, as easy to rile up as we can be, as easy to break down and be destroyed in a way in the same way humans can be.
Do not let emotions stay because they are familiar. They will know when they are not welcome. They may stay anyways. But you can make them share. You can make them change in different company. You can take all the same steps you would if you were feeling incredibly sick or threatened and fix the problem.
Sometimes, this may not feel like an option.
But embrace the feelings. Remember the feelings. Allow only the ones you truly care for in when you can. Do not expect good to come knocking at your door when you can’t spare it a second glance or a small thought as you loosen the embrace of the bad.
This take time. It takes work. It takes thought. Treat emotions as people and you may learn more about yourself and them than you thought.
