While it’s true we need a balance of emotions in our lives, ultimately our existence is dependent on our reactions. Think about it, everything that happens to you is interrelated. When things are shitty, you have to allow yourself to express your emotions and you are entitled to your response. But you can’t let negative emotions empower you. Say you had a bad day, you’re allowed to be sad about it. But what good will being sad to all the other areas of your live bring you? To be successful, you need to embrace even the most negative of emotions with happiness, when someone or something pushes you down, learning how to consciously choose happiness with help bring you back up. Understand that you can choose to take the world with a grain of salt or smile back at the rudest of people, you can only get stronger with positivity. The sun will still rise again. Take the time to be sad, or angry or confused, but always try your hardest to come back to happiness. Even the biggest of failures are blessings in disguise. It’s much easier said than done, but YOU’VE GOT THIS!
