When you get in touch with your innermost feelings, it’s difficult to catch the flamboyant, energetic fish such as happiness. Ironically, the unwanted emotions – sadness, nostalgia, come skimming near the surface, just begging to be taken out of the water. It’s so easy to succumb to negativity, which often leads to unreasonable anger at a third party, or to episodes of self-pity. But before you feel bad about your “issues”, take a step back and look at the big picture. Think about others who have experienced greater tragedy, others who are in greater misfortune. Acknowledge that no matter how bleak the situation you are in is, there must be someone out there fighting a bigger war than yours.
