Do you ever get caught in this trap?
You think that if you get mad enough, or depressed enough, or angry enough,
that somehow it will change the situation.
I'll have you consider that the only thing that will happen,
is you will feel the full reality of the emotion you are creating.
These shitty emotions come from the story we are spinning in our head about the situation.
I used to do this ALL THE TIME!
I would think that if i got mad enough, that somehow things would change.
Fortunately I've realized(through a lot of pain) that this simply is not true.
We live in a cause and effect world.
If we take action we will get a result.
The key then is to take action, review said action, adjust, learn, and then take more action until you finally hit your target.
So why do we think that if we get mad enough that things will change?
Because it feels productive.
But guess what?
This is what's called " Mental Masturbation"
Overthinking something while trying to make yourself feel good about
NOT TAKING ACTION.
As Tony Robbins says "Divorce the story and marry the true".
Instead of getting upset, just clarify what you want and take one simple action towards it.
