When not to say anything….
Blimey if you anything like me when you know the wise thing is just to let it be you somehow can’t let it go!!!
Mindfulness is sometimes easier said than done.
More often than not people don’t like pure honesty even if it is right and I guess I must fall into that category take things to heart all the time, think the world and everyone I know is out to get me….
Or as happens most often read something and take it totally the wrong way and make huge mountains out of what is only a blip!!!! And then tell someone exactly how feel.
Plus worse keep repeating history and make even more idiot of yourself than normal if that’s possible and over think!!!!
Plus it’s a crushing feeling when heart seems to over rule head and instead of just letting it pass emotions get in way and you do react to a situation.
Having done yoga and trying to find my own inner guru tending to over react to things which don’t involve me, wont matter in ten years time when it’s the here and now the present which really does matter.
– Not what could be or reliving a past which can’t be changed!!! Or reacting to something you don’t know the outcome off.
The later making over thinking, paranoid imagination and to much time on hands where everything you think possible could go wrong does. As it’s really own emotional black mail to trip up, sabotage self and end up on constant cycle of unable to get out a situation or be in constant state of lack.
This is not what anyone wants even though it’s a trail many end up in myself included whether over sensitive or whatever.
Stepping back and letting it go is actually far easier and lifts whole burden of what you think might happen.
Reading above I know I jump in more often than not drawing wrong conclusion and punishing self for nothing. I not sure why this is such a part of human nature to make our opinion heard or that our weaknesses become more apparent – the whole ego thing!
Maybe it’s why the rise of eastern guru magic and yoga and so forth is more prominent now than ever – learning to let go is not easy as ego will always in some form be there but it is a necessary if we have to change and grow and learn from our past….
Not sure if any above relevant to anyone else I do suffer from depression and coming into autumn/fall weather my mood has went way down and feeling stuck in a situation where whatever seem to do is only making it worse not better or over trying being to eager to please.
Maybe due to making one situation – so important I have totally let my emotions rule everything and ruin the opportunity there!! As said self sabotage is about as destructive as anything and being own worse enemy.
Ok I stop and hopefully there is something in above – that letting be and seeing what happens instead of pushing for what want and remaining silent even when you feel like otherwise is masterful!!! To simply not say anything instead!! Amen to that and yes it’s a fools end to react and one that those of wisdom and experience don’t need told!!!!
