💕It’s nice to think that what you love actually loves you, what you desire desires you, and what you want wants you. But is this what the famous quote said by Rumi really is about?
Have you ever found yourself in the situation, that made you wonder why things were in that way?
Having a typical day but not feeling as you generally do, or being positive somehow even though there is no reason for you to be so. You are just at home alone while having a positive attitude and suddenly you receive an email that says you have been accepted to an opportunity you have applied to a long time ago.
How surprising it is, you might be thinking, since you really wanted to be part of that opportunity but you were not actually expecting it to happen. Your positive attitude is what made it possible: and now you really have a specific reason to be happy because you achieved something you wanted.
But just like having positive feelings, we often feel sad as well thinking about the worst possible thing that could happen. Even though we try to focus on elements of our lives that make us feel great and worthy, sometimes, our wishes just don’t happen the way we dream it. We feel blue and we convince ourselves that we do have a reason to feel like that.
There are many hard and painful events that could trigger this feeling such as a divorce, an illness, or worries over money. But when we find ourselves in these situations, it might turn out that what we were looking for was looking for us too. Of course, people don’t consciously search for these situations. But when we allow ourselves to feel depressed and focus on this emotion, we experience our mood getting worse. After all, what we focus on grows and with feelings, this is often the case.
