Tired, Subtle Sorrow
    #2060448 - 10/31/03 02:00 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Just me, sitting here listening to laid back Red Hot Chili Peppers tunes off of By the Way, sort of tired, feeling mildly down...

Oh god, and then the next song that plays is by Staind, off of their latest album. Oh boy, I'm fucked! :grin:

I don't know what it is, either. Well, I have some clue, but it isn't anything important or anything.. I'm just left feeling.. sort of mildly down. heh.

I also realize that I can bring myself up with a snap of my fingers. All I have to do is get up, strech out a bit, pump myself up..

Well, I am now feeling better. All it takes is some active thinking to change ones state of mind.. :grin:
Peace.

Sadness is part of the human condition just like happiness. Just another wave that we have to ride. When I'm feeling bad I always remind myself that my emotions are impermanent and that happiness will return in the future.

And when one looks at every experience as a fresh and glorious opportunity to learn about oneself, then even sadness can become an enlightening and educational experience.

Sometimes I even get in the mood to feel sad, so I'll throw on Beck's album Sea Change and let the depressed tunes fill my soul. No better way to feel gloomy than to the tunes of Beck.

Keep ridin' the waves bro....Peace!

When I feel down or like I want to get away from it all, I put on some Type-O and take a warm bath, usually holding my breath underwater for as long as I can stand.

Hehe, it is something that I get over pretty quick. My guitarist logged in soon afterwards (actually, right when I was finishing up typing), and we started sending files back and forth, and then I ended up digging up some old notebooks of drawing and lyrics, and now I am working on some old song ideas...

Always knowing that it is just a state of mind and that changing your thoughts can change your mood always helps me get past the shit. Sometimes I don't want to pull myself up, but then I just remind myself of how dumb I am to be pre-occupied with pointless shit when I should be loving every minute of this blessing known as life..

But yeah, one always gains an added perspective from such moods as well that benefit us down the road. :grin:
Peace.

yea I find when I'm real tired or lazy, all I have to do is say 1 2 3 really fast and I become more alert/awake. If you believe that saying 1 2 3 will give you energy, then it will. Try it.

I've basically learned to turn off my emotions...at times I get these really massively intense spike of anger or happiness or whatever, but for the most part it's pretty much right there in the middle without ever really fluctuating hardly at all

if you were to graph my emotions it would probably look something like this:





.........................................................../\
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
..........................................................|..|
................./\................./\...................|..|../\................................./\
......./\....../...\............../...\.........____/...\/...\....................../\....../..\
___/..\..../.....\....../\.../......\....../....................\.../\............./...\.../.....\___
..........\../.......|..../...\/.........\.../.......................\/...\....../\../.....\/
...........\/........|.../.................\/................................\.../..\/
......................|..|......................................................\/
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
......................|..|
.......................\/



only with the spikes being much more intense and much farther apart
(I'm too lazt to make a more accurate graph)
