Be Positive #MayTivation

Be Positive.

Have you ever paused and realized the amount of pressure these two words can put on others and yourself?

Human beings come inbuilt to experience a range of emotions. Some, like love, happiness, contentment, and more are those we know as Positive emotions. Then there are the not so popular ones, like anger, hatred, despair and the like all neatly clubbed under Negative emotions or Negativity.

There is so much pressure to be positive/feel positive/think positive from everywhere, be it family, friends, social media even those whatsapp forwards that do the rounds that most of us are guilty or even afraid to feel anything ‘negative’ and talk about it when we do.

Suppressing any emotion tends to magnify it and it usually finds an outlet in some form. Kind of like putting yourself on a strict diet, thinking of the food you’ve decided to deprive yourself of and then giving in to one mad moment and binge eating, only to regret it later and realizing that portion control works better than deprivation.

In the same way it works better to experience every emotion you may be going through, keeping in mind not to let the not so pleasant ones stay back and become a habit.

Feel everything you go through, do not suppress that, and do not hold onto it either. And after you’ve done so, let it go and feel the relief. Remember portion control works better than deprivation.

This is what Being Positive should be truly about.

    Oh loved it..’portion control works better than deprivation’. Bang on!
    Positivity is not about doing something under pressure or following a strict regime. Good one Mayuri. It is truly Maytivational. 🙂

    I loved the analogy of potion control. Yes, we need to feel all kinds of emotions but also learn to let out go. It’s the latter that causes trouble because we hold on to that feeling of resentment or sorrow. That’s when we need to be positive and look forward to better times 🙂 all those whatsapp msg and fb shares are getting out of hand though

    Achieving portion control comes from within.. I so find it difficult at times but I do give it a thought a second time and exercise control. But yes it finally it does being in an element of positivity.

    Loved the fact that you are endorsing feeling the negative with the positive. I totally agree with you about feeling so scared to feel it, that one starts blaming oneself if anything goes wrong – blame because one feels they brought it on themselves by being negative.
