Identification and swings

 

This is something I noticed most in my teens and early twenties, and only occasionally nowadays – for example today.

When I am energetic and in a good mood, and try to hold onto it, it tends to swing into its reverse the day after.

And if I make use if it, but with less identification, it is fine. Usually, it just naturally fades and then returns when it is time.

The identification is of course with stories saying “I need to hold onto it”. And the backlash comes because it is not true. I am at odds with reality when I believe those type of stories, and life is kind enough to let me know in different ways. First, through stress as it happens. And for me, and possibly others, by swinging into the opposite.
