Lately I have been thinking a lot of the conversations I have with others, particularly or especially because of the energy we put out and receive during these exchanges. One of my observations has been that (we) are conditional complainers.
You wake up in the best spirits, life has positioned you to be in a great place, you are content, at least for today, you are happy on how things are going. Work is smooth. Family is healthy. Not broke. Bills paid. And you and your boo thang getting along great. Then you hit up the chat... or meet up with a friend and you guys start to chat. They tell you how they are tired... work was too much and their joint hasn't text them back in a few days. You scurry through the list of misery to see what can you say and more often than not you reply with something like " i feel you..." and proceed with your own list of complaints.
Why? Is it because you don't want to gloat? Is it because you want to sympathize or soften the blow by making her/him think that it's just everyone going through it... because lets face it that makes things a little better when you know it's not just you having a rough time. It is because we are conditional complainers. We are used to speaking about the negative more than the positive. But, if you are someone like me that understands and reads energy, or you are an empath, that can deeply affect you because now you really do "feel" for them and even take that energy with you throughout your day. And now you feel a type of way when you reflect on your conversation, and your ray of sunlight is now hampered with someone else's cloud.
So what to do!? Don't gloat... don't relate... just listen and go into the bank of affirmations and spill them out! It's going to be ok. How can I help? Everything happens for a reason so trust it's for your best! And my personal fave... god doesn't give you something you can't handle. There is a book that reads, "it takes a minimum of 21 days for an old mental image to dissolve and a new one to gel." So take a 21 day challenge and try not to complain. Maybe this will shift your own energy into seeing the positive in your life and give others the gift of positivity.
Lets break the conditional complaining habit and convert those words into positive affirmations. Here at Morir Sonando we enjoy setting your week off each Monday morning with a positive affirmation. Now we challenge you to do the same for your loved ones... or tell them to follow us!
