Sometimes I find myself nervous and submerge in a flood of anxiety and sadness. I know that all people, more or less, pass this state of mind and I’m not the only one to undergo such feelings, but what I’m interested in is could we tackle this situation and turn such negative feelings to be positive and an inspiration for productivity?
All human being must experience sadness, but people differ only in the degree of their experience. And, as the American author Jim Rohn said “The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy”, it’s better to let a flash of light come through the window of our hearts during the gloomy periods, that way we’ll switch on delight torch to illuminate the darker corner inside us. Therefore, the pain and negative feelings we receive from such experience could turned to be a motivation and a strength we may exploit in creation and productive matters.
Though, during the hardest times when we feel bad and experience sadness, which is a natural necessity for human nature, we’ve better to keep positive as much as possible. I know that it’s not an easy task to do, but with more patience and hope, we’ll make out a way to deal with the situation. And instead of totally be subject for feelings of sorrow, one may find a remedy for the chasm made by such feelings through practicing some matters in which he finds himself be that writing, drawing, playing music or whatever.
