Why do we judge ourselves so harshly over our emotions. If you are in a bad mood, you are a bitch. If you are sad, you are over sensitive. If you are grieving, you are a downer.
This could all be an internal conversation and have no bearing on what other's think at all.
All the same, we go about our day and are flooded with positivity. In the forms of caring people who just want you to happy. In the form of memes on social media and even in the form of self help books. These books we turn to so we can unlock a miracle of happiness from every page.
So what happens to these negative thoughts. Should we not explore where they came from? Get up into all the where and whys of it.
Positive is great, happiness is wonderful but our misery is telling and therapeutic for authentic self awareness.
Yes, I said it! Be a miserable person any time you feel like you need to. This does not mean you can stay there. Someone who pouts all the time is just as annoying as someone who smiles all the time.
It is Okay not to be Okay. Learn from it. Discover your emotions head on, pull up you big girl panties and fix your lipstick.
