Prompt: Unsafe Containers
Which emotion(s) — joy, envy, rage, pity, or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?
Sadness has become the hardest emotion for me to contain lately. I am disappointed in my race. Saddened by my neighbors. I find it hard to understand how the world has become so corrupt. So lost.
I think that the answer to this is community, that my lacking of connection with the people around me causes my sadness. I try to be as happy as I can in my life, it is what I consider to be the goal of my life. I want to share this with the people around me and this truly is what makes me happy. The more am I around people, the happier I tend to be.
Recently, I have also become very successful at bringing myself back into happiness. My greatest sadness occurs when I am lost, when I am disappointed in myself, isolated. Productivity and discipline are two ways that I have been defeating sadness and depression and I have found that together they can bring hope back into your life. Concrete goals that have steps and milestones are what keep me motivated every day. Dreams and aspirations became possible again and the world seems like a brand new place.
You are in control of your own happiness.
I think the title is funny because the container refers to my body. My system for experiencing the world. My friend calls his body his avatar, its pretty funny, cause its true. Anyways, take the red pill, try some yoga, and enjoy your time here.
