If Talking Doesn't Change Your Emotion Maybe Action Will

This Too Shall Pass

By action I mean doing something like walking it off and give yourself the visual stimulation that will encourage your mind to think more clearly about your possible solutions and less of the possible, overwhelming obstacles.

As you walk (or doing whatever physically active task you choose) having yourself instruct your brain into giving possible solutions that have the potential to improve your current situation.

You need to remember that what you instruct your brain to think about it will expand on.

When you give it a negative thought about how powerless you feel, it will expand on that thought until you find yourself worse off than you where.

But when you give your brain a positive (or at least hopeful thought) about what can you do now to begin to improve things in your life, then eventually and with your persistent concentration on getting an Action Related answer from your brain, a way will be shown to you.

"I'm sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

Thank you."

Do not deny yourself your "down" days, but don't let them take total control of your thinking and therefore your life.

We can talk about it until the cows come home but if you are feeling no better, then

» do some sit ups,

» do some push ups,

» do some chore around the house,

» take a walk,

» drive somewhere,

» have safe sex with your partner,

» meditate,

» put on your favorite music and dance to it or sing along, if not both,

» go watch a movie,

» cook,

» paint,

» read something (fiction or non-fiction),

» or write your thoughts down about how you feel AND what you would prefer to see happen in your life apart from your temporary circumstances.

A problem cannot be solved at the same level of thinking that created it.

That is why by you taking a breather from your temporary problem, you be giving yourself the clarity you need to solve it when you return to it.

You can give this game a try. The purpose of this game is to begin to GRADUALLY change you mood for the better.

And when you feel good, you do good.

"I'm sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

Thank you."

Your friend,

Musa
