This weeks meeting was a good chance to discuss some of the news items about Depression and Anxiety that are around at the moment. It's always interesting to listen to your views and thoughts. Although our experiences of these types of conditions differ, we all share a mutual and deep understanding of the effects these conditions cause.
I was left pondering "mood" this week. What creates my "mood". Why am I so moody? Why has my mood lifted? Was it something someone said ? Or did? That has influenced my "mood"? Who is this mood? Me or You? If my mood is influenced by someone else, then who is in control here? Can mood just appear out of nowhere? It does seem like that at times, but it's usually in response to a thought provoked by someone else's comment or something someone else did or didn't do or it could be from my inner self or my inner turmoil. My expectation of others can also effect my mood! This caused me to reflect and think, do I use my mood as a weapon against those whom I think have done me an injustice? Does that weapon wound them, they may be thinking they have done the right thing? Or a weapon against myself? Does that harm me! So who is in control of my mood? I can only conclude that it's Me!
Hope the coming weeks are good to you all
