Is Your Misery Your Security Blanket?
When we are unhappy we cling to our frustration/anger/misery in the way that children cling to their security blanket. Doing so validates our years of pain, complaining and believing that life won’t cut us a break. Feelings are to thoughts what water is to a flame. We can’t talk our way out of emotional pain; we have to feel our way out. You can’t be happy. Happy is not something you become. You have to feel happy. Until you understand some concepts your reality is distorted, meaning two things. You think you do see all the good and it pales in comparison to your problems or you don’t think you have much good around you. Trust me both are wrong.
