Moods and stress affect us all and if not monitored or worked on, can spiral into us feeling low, which can move on to depression; particularly if we already have a disposition. The funny thing about a mood is that it can appear without any warning. It’s not something we’re consciously aware of, but something that just appears from nowhere.
Being in a mood is a normal progression of stress, what we feel and think from what’s going on around us, so that we’re not so much in control. Moods tell us that all is not okay and that we need to work through what’s causing our mood.
There are people who suffer with moods and negativity all the time. They only see their life as negative and however much anyone tries to show them a different way, they only see negativity. It’s very difficult to be negative and not be moody. The two go hand in hand.
Moods and negativity are inherit, it’s something we see in families. Moods stem from unresolved issues that need to be resolved and with all unresolved issues, they need to be resolved quickly, calmly and efficiently. It’s easy for us to bottle up our emotions.
Even easier to say there’s nothing wrong and go about our business without uttering a word, but those emotions will eventually bring our mood down, until such a time we lose our cool. There’s no getting away from it.
Moods are contagious. Even if someone doesn’t have a history of being moody, it’s very difficult to be in someone’s company and not pick up what they feel. I tend to steer clear of negativity and stressful situations where I can and avoid people who are negative.
There is a train of thought that if we could sort out problems, we wouldn’t have moods. That said we must work on that. If we don’t have moods, we will have calm, peace and tranquility.
