What do you usually do when you feel down and out…too weak and stressed to bounce back with all the effervescence you are usually linked to?
- Probably, write a personal rant post cursing how unfair life is, people ruthless, or circumstances simply devastating.
😦 Writing is the last thing I can think of. Even if my mind is facing a tornado of negative thoughts, I could very rarely bring myself out to vomit it all on a word document! People tell me that my blog leaves them with a positive and good feeling. How can I defy the essence of my blog and post something like this. So, not writing anything at all suits me well on such black days!
- Crib and behave badly with people to take out your wrath, frustration and anger.
The idea appeals me. But, I am a person who goes on emotional hibernation and come up with almost a stoic and indifferent attitude towards people, when I feel really frustrated and angry.
I do believe that in state of anger, we end up speaking more than required and may hurt people more than we intend to (though at that moment you might experience a sudden urge to murder people even!). This is a sure shot idea to feel better instantly. I personally don’t go for it as in anger I become very bitter and shoot sharp words! Though, bottling things inside me harms me more and prolongs my healing period, but I can’t help it.
- Have a few cribbing sessions with close friends over a drink.
This is precisely what I like to do. Last Friday, I met one of my female friends, cribbed about life and people, had a wonderful mojito and felt better. Girls are your best pals in such times. Guys, don’t mind this, but you are not capable of understanding emotional upheaval faced by a female.
Cheers to such meetings which infuse life in me! 😛
- Spend time with your own self in peace.
Talking about, spending time with my own self…office is the place for that which has become my zone of comfort more than my house. Though I worked like a donkey for 12 hours/day in the past one month, but I still love my workplace.
It might not be very peaceful in office considering the moderate noise levels, but so what at least I can hear what my own self is saying. Somehow, I am capable of streamlining my thoughts and working with focus even if I am placed in a room with blaring sounds!
Now, that I am on my path of healing myself…and have started feeling fair (though not good :()…the first thing in office I am doing is writing this post, before this good feeling loses its fizz by end of the day due to tiredness and #$%^& things!
So, this is for you Alice and Arpit who missed me so terribly (though I keep meeting Arpit every now and then!). Thanks! 🙂
I know life is unfair, but still you can bend down in front of it.
