She got the blues on occasion just like everyone else. She just chose not to roll around in them for too long. – Queenisms™
Being sad, or feeling down is a common experience, especially following a big holiday. For some, the inability to pull themselves up out of that feeling is a sign of clinical depression and for those people, professional assistance is valuable. But the vast majority of us have a choice. We can wallow around for extended periods of time, hoping others will notice we are blue, relishing the attention we get, and perpetrating the cycle of pouting, reward, boredom and more pouting. Or, we can have a good talk with ourselves and decide we’d prefer to get our attention from a more positive place. Rolling around in our blues creates a habit of unhappiness. Being of service to others, practicing positive actions and thoughts and banishing negative self-talk are just three ways to shake the unhappiness habit.
