I am sure we must have heard the statement “Don’t worry,be happy!” when we feel low and also we all are well- acquainted it’s easier said than done. Being “Happy” is not something other people have control upon us except in few cases. And, I guess the statement holds too much of ridiculousness; I have never seen such a disciplined and obeying person who becomes happy when someone says him/her to be so.
Do we not feel bad when we don’t acquire results according to our hopes and anticipations ? Undoubtedly we do! It’s a human nature. I feel it is completely fine. I feel low, you and we all feel terrible as per the degree of situations and the stress mounts upon the increment of problems.
It’s obvious to feel bad when something goes against our expectations and to feel good when something good takes place. And even though we are known that “uncertainty is the only certainty”, its not an easy task to accept the fact and we fear taking the path of uncertainty.
Being a susceptible and prone to uncertainties and hurdles coming along the path in a person’s life, it’s a matter of complication to stay curious and enthusiast during the time. During the progression of life,
When the feelings like ; “my life is absurd” , ” I am unlucky”, ” I can do nothing in my life”, “nothing is happening as expected”, “progress is being hampered” etc arising and continual fear of insecurities striking us are not anew concern at such times.
Despite the absence of those feelings, there are factors which continually pull us back; hindering in our progress i.e. in different level.
I have gone through these dire situations in the past and they do occur time and often at present as well. These circumstances are hints for me which suggest me to allow significant care and affection for myself. Then, I choose and feel need to opt for self-reflection as the primary step and at the meantime, abiding the other ongoing processes.
These days, instead of wishing the bad feelings not to proceed in the life, I have come to realize it’s an ongoing inevitable process. And rather, I seek to cope with the situation with these measures among various others:
- Breaking the normal schedule :
This practice has so far turned out to be the best one and worked amazingly in my case. Most of the times, I try rearranging the usual routine with the inclusion of something different activites and surprises along. Basically, this means doing something out of spontaneity; without any preliminary plans, some self tests for instance.
- Travelling :
When we are engulfed by the uncertainties and confusion, I best believe that its a good idea to travel and more importantly it’ll be even better to travel alone. In my case, I choose to wander alone which allows me to embrace freedom! Mainly,I love being around temple areas where there’s abundance of positive energy and except few, most of the people go there with positive mindset. This provides me with an opportunity to instill and restore positive energy within me as well.
- Updating music playlist :
We all are quite familiar with the fact that music contributes a lot in our life and also has imperative role in determining our emotions. One of the reasons for having invariable emotions is listening to same music repeatedly. I update my playlist quite often which assists in bringing up sparkling vibes.
Reading books, articles and entertaining piece of writing aids in lessening the unnecessary anxiety. And this measure doesn’t work all the time. Even this can be frustating at times. Timely and sensible reading habit can be of great help.
These are some of the many ways I do during the pressured situations. Sorry if you’re puzzled after reading this!
That was not my purpose rather it was to express myself and share my opinions. 😉
