It’s pretty noticeable that social media is full of positivity in a world that isn’t all sweetness and light.
Sometimes, I find that reading reams of positive stuff makes me feel like I’ve overdosed on chocolate.
However, I know that when I feel down, I tend to use what I call ‘positive’ writing as a way to haul myself up. This is at the public level, at least. My private journals are probably a lot closer to the real me.
But overall, I find that the very act of writing a positive post tends to lift my mood.
Today is one of those down days, for a variety of reasons, and here’s where I went delving to find much-needed colour and bounce!… laugh, leaning back in my arms for life’s not a paragraph And death i think is no parenthesis. (e.e.cummings)
What’s your approach? Do you tell it as it is if you’re down or do you try to find something, a n y t h i n g positive to write about to both lift yourself (and not feel that you’re dumping your miseries on other people)?
