I’m sad today. Someone I tried to help — financially, emotionally, moving-furniture-ally, helping-find-a-job-ally, is falling into a pit and lashing out. So I am very much feeling today’s card. I’m working to put it out of my mind by going to a comedy club tonight.
I also find the following mantra helps: “Sometimes you just can’t help people. Don’t let someone abusive tell you who you are.”
Why does it hurt some much to feel yet we as people can’t stop?
It’s normal to have sad thoughts invade our quiet time. To get over it and move on:
– distract yourself by calling a friend or seeing a movie
– resolve the issue intellectually as to who’s at fault and what to do
– use this intellectual resolution to push aside your emotional state when it’s not helping.
