It happens. Positive people aren't always optimistic. We are humans, and all humans experience doubt at times. I had an overwhelming moment the other day. I tried my best to hide it, but it seeped through my pores and came bursting out through my emotions. I couldn't hold it in any longer. After my vulnerable episode, I thought about what my mother once said to me when I was young and in the middle of performing one of my Oscar-worthy, crying fits that I was infamous for. There I was sprawled out on the floor like someone had attempted to take my last breath and my mother came in the room, casually leaned on the door and said, "I'm going to let you have your moment, but after the moment, get yourself together." I was astonished. I only have a moment to throw my fit??? Okay....so I got the fit out of my system, then went on like the day was never interrupted by my childish antics. And to this day, that is my method. Throw the fit (privately), get it out of my system, then get myself together.
Yes, we positive people get in our heads and feelings at times, but the difference between us and negative people is - WE DON'T WALLOW IN IT. We have our moments and in the midst of our moments, something in us says, "wait a minute, this is not how we operate." And then we immediately correct our thoughts and redirect energy. Being a positive person doesn't mean life won't catch you off guard. However, when positivity is your mode of operation, you will always go back to that place. Think about it, you can put clothes on a dog and he or she will wear them for a while, but at some point, most dogs begin to roll around in the clothing in an attempt to get out of them. That's because their default setting is that of a dog. This should be the same with a positive mindset. Life can throw us things that will make us go absolutely crazy, but if positivity is our default setting then we will eventually bounce back into that mode.
So whatever negative moment you are having or have had, let it be. Just make sure you get yourself together after that moment. Get back to your default setting.
