Have you ever met a person who is bound and determined to be miserable as soon as they wake up in the morning? Someone who carries a dark cloud of negativity and sourness with them even when they’re supposed to be having fun? Every now and then I run across a person like this.
Recently I was at an event that is both free and fun. However a person who voluntarily came to said event arrived with the intention of being unhappy. Sour looks and negativity radiated from this person the entire evening, affecting those that surrounded. This person was like a black hole, sucking joy and happiness out of those nearby. For the life of me, I cannot understand why people act this way.
Why on earth would someone choose misery and unhappiness when they could have joy and pleasure? It doesn’t make any logical sense to me (which may be my problem, logic.)
Happy is something you can CHOOSE to be. Yes, as always there are extenuating circumstances for those suffering from clinical depression but there’s still an effort to be made here. Wake up and begin your day with an affirmation: Today WILL be a good day. Bad things may happen, things may not be perfect, but I will handle them with grace and a smile.
You can do it, I have faith in you!
