Have you ever experience the following?: You are happy, having fun, nothing bothers you then…WHAMO!..somebody says something or does something and then your mood changes for the worse!
What just happened? Your bubble just got popped!! We can be coasting along in our own happy world, oblivious to all around us, but then something touches the surface of our bubble and it explodes. The negativity has burst our positivity bubble!
The surface tension of our bubble might be different than someone else’s surface tension. It might be weaker than otherr, or it might be stronger and able to withstand a good, sharp stab. How do you know what your bubble’s surface tension is like? If someone makes a blunt comment and your bubble pops, then you have a weak surface tension. If someone makes a sharp comment and pops your bubble, then you have strong surface tension! But the good news is that you can constantly strengthen your bubble’s surface tension to withstand the sharpest of jabs!
What can I do to strengthen my bubble’s tension? The main thing you can do is stay vigilant! Try and avoid the barbs that surround you daily. If one has just hit your bubble, immediately deal with it!
How do i deal with it? You can either walk away from the situation. Or if someone has made an unfair comment, just realise that the comment was unfair and move on. Do not dwell on it! If someone makes a sharp comment, then let them take ownership of the emotion(s) behind the comment. (Maybe they are having a bad day; maybe they haven’t developed the right “people skills”). If someone has done something to irritate you, do not take it as a personal attack!
DO NOT TAKE ON BOARD ANYONE’S NEGATIVITY!
If you refuse to allow to take on the negative emotions of those around you, then you will find that your bubble will stay intact! It’s like a force-field of peace and serenity, that only gets stronger as you protect it and defend it!
Heck, you a find that other people want in on your bubble of happiness, peace and joy! Let them in!!
