I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
Be like water – let yourself flow.
Have you ever lashed out at someone for no reason because other events annoyed you during the day? Don’t worry, I have too…
The question I asked myself which helped me sort myself out was this: ‘How can I live life being so significantly affected by insignificant events?’
It actually kind of scares just how easily our mindsets can be skewed and how a number of independent and meaningless events which should have no impact on our mental state can build up and actually affect our mindset and actions.
I have started to notice it more when speaking to some people; they can get so emotionally affected by tiny things such as people walking slow or someone acting in a particular way… why are they letting it get to them? As a result of letting themselves get affected by it clouds up their mindset – this could potentially negatively impact the way they make important decisions and the relationships they have etc.
Ultimately for me it just feels like a waste of energy – focus your time and energy on the things that you can control and the actions you can take to live your life to the fullest.
Random external events will happen every day – they will try and interfere with your life; someone will say a comment which you may find insulting; you will miss a train; you will accidentally purchase Apple Music when you didn’t mean too (happened to me last week…)
It is important to let these events flow through you instead of letting them clog up your system so you can think and act freely.
If you think you have a right to be emotionally affected by some events give this a read.
