Misery loves company

Have you ever been in that place where you’re feeling miserable and you have someone trying to cheer you up, but you don’t want to be cheered up?

If you have a low self esteem, then this is probably a situation you have been in before – I know because I’ve been there! Snapping out of a mindset of misery is much easier said than done, right?

The “old” me would have agreed wholeheartedly, but the “new” me totally disagrees.

I suppose it all stems back to how you choose to live your life. If you choose to live a happy life, then guess what – very little will get you down and if you do get down on occasion, it doesn’t take much to cheer you up again.

It is all about choice, and you can choose what you want to let into your life, be it good stuff or negative stuff.

Have you ever noticed on television that the highest rating current affairs stories are usually negative? Of course they have the odd happy story, but more often than not, they’re talking about people being dishonest, or conspiracies, or violence or sadness or destruction. Why do these shows rate so highly do you think? Because they’re in tune with what the majority of those watching want to see. If that’s the case, then what does that tell you about the mindset of these people? They only play the stuff because they know they’ll get viewers.

Well guess what? Now is the time to switch off the TV. Only turn it on again for comedies or education (sorry, no soap operas, as they’re usually focused on doom and gloom too!). Try this for just a week and see if you feel any better!

Have a great day!
