Peat And Repeat–Who Or What Determines Your Mood

Peat And Repeat.  I am going to repost some of my past posts while I am recuperating.  Sometimes you can do too much.  Anticipating posting new material  that I will be including in a class that I will be teaching on campus in the fall, Humanistic Psychology.

However, wouldn’t it be nice if you could choose your mood? and not someone
else or something else?  Feelings are catching.  The other day it was
Obamacare and the rising cost of insurance leading to the fear of not
being able to afford to carry medical insurance and doing without.  It
was very upsetting to think about and anyway not a very constructive
thing to do.  It is not that I don’t think it could happen, but why be
miserable and worry about it when it has not happened yet.  Also the
politicians responsible for this potential problem are not and never
were worried about it and besides if it happened, it wouldn’t be a
problem for them as they have already made sure that they will be
covered and/or could afford the increased cost of medical insurance.
Misery loves company.  When one person gets upset about something like
this, they want to share the problem with others.

Then there is
the sniper, the person who from out of no where says something to you
that cuts to the quick and goes merrily on their way while you are
bleeding to death.  Consider the source, this may not be the first time
this has happened to you with this person.  Are you going to let that
person ruin your day? especially when he or she will deny that he or she
had any intention of doing so.

Let go and let God.   Just because
someone else is upset, do you need to get upset too?  When somebody has
bad intentions and denies them, do you let them get away with it.  Not
only do you wind up feeling bad, but also you can’t justify it on the
grounds that the other person says that they didn’t mean anything by
what they said.

Not only are physical illnesses catching, but also emotional ones too.
