My Mind So Easily Can Take My Happiness And Turn It Into Something So Unrecognizable

It is so hard controlling my crazy emotions enough to allow my mind to be the safe haven it once was. I always thought I was capable of growing stronger and happier and healthier, but I have come to realize how weak my mind is. I feel like I have no control sometimes. I have tried so much to help myself become healthier and happier. I believe very much in the laws of attraction. I try telling myself, if I want to be happy I can be. I try to see the glass as half full. Happiness seems like a full time job, a constant battle against my own mind. Its crazy how something as wonderful and intricate as my mind can create dreams I never want to end, and at the same time, it can create terrible nightmares and words that haunt and hurt me.

It's scary how our own thoughts and emotions can turn against us all of the sudden; I've also experienced what you described. Keep doing positive things for yourself and things will get better.

I hear and I understand... I feel so much like that. I am sending you a hug. Take care Ti.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes." She continued, "The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything." It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down! -author unknown
