Lypophrenia: “a vague feeling of sadness seemingly without cause.“

It’s an apt description of my mood this weekend. My life has been going quite well and I’m in a good place, so this feeling has me perplexed. I’m assuming it’s because I suddenly have some important decisions to make and I’m feeling a bit stressed. This weekend has been devoted to spending time at home alone. I needed a breather from socializing.
There are some who say you should always be positive, look on the bright side, paste on a smile, etc. It’s not realistic. I believe in the importance of positivity, but I also believe in acknowledging your negative feelings, as well. You can’t pretend them away. Giving them air is the fastest route towards resolution. Validate them, reflect upon them, understand them and then let them go. Don’t dwell too long. I learned this lesson the hard way.

On a brighter note, I used my jacuzzi tub for the first time. There were bubbles, my favorite playlist and a good book. It was spectacular. 🛁 ❤️
