Oddly enough, there’s something strangely satisfying about these discussions. They bring people together, almost like a form of group therapy. In these moments, we release the pent-up emotions that have been brewing inside us. It’s as though our words serve as a pressure valve, letting out the toxic feelings accumulated from life’s various challenges.
You know, there’s a certain catharsis in saying what we think. It feels good to ‘come clean’ about our feelings, even if it does involve some ‘dirty’ language.
But, here’s the catch – is it really wise to keep ‘affirming the awful’ in this way? Words possess immense power; they carry energy, much like our thoughts.
Now, I get it, when you’re in a foul mood, and someone advises you to adopt an “attitude of gratitude,” your first instinct might be to throw a punch. But there’s a nugget of wisdom in that advice. Our enjoyment of life is profoundly affected by where we direct our attention.
Let’s focus on affirming the positive aspects of life, making it a brighter and more fulfilling journey. It’s time to shift our narrative from “awful” to “awesome.”
