Moods without Reason
I’m currently having a “I’m thinking too much” week (again!) so the best way to right my mind is to put those crazy thoughts down. What better place than my blog, which is the holder of all my madcap words.
I came up with this “theory” as to why we all experience sadness or even anger without actually knowing why we are.
To identify this condition is go through a situation when you are having those jumpy mood and someone asks you why you’re so blue and you just shake your head and say you have no freaking idea.(excuse the usage of so many connectors)
So what causes this anyway? My speculation is that you are expecting something from this world but you have not accepted the expectation so when the expectation is not met you feel depressed or angry however you do not know why because you have not accepted the expectation.
Going over your head? Let me break it down with a help of an example.
There is something you want so badly, maybe a boy/girl you like or an opportunity you are desperate to get (take your pick). You know that a best friend of yours wants the same thing and wanted it before you did. So you tell yourself to keep away from it for after all its your best friend. Now, you haven’t accepted the expectation but somewhere your hearts still wants it. And then…… your friends gets what she wanted or rather you also wanted. You feel happy for her but the mood shifts to one of sadness for your heart is the activator of emotions and your heart knows you wanted it. Someone who worries about you asks you what happened and you don’t know for your mind is the one thinking and it hadn’t accepted the expectation. Thus, resulting in a foul mood without you knowing a reason for it.
A friend of mine completely agreed with my theory and told me it was spot on. I cannot be sure without more inputs. So what do you guys think? I’m somewhere right? Comment with your views!
