We all know that people react differently to the same things on different days. One day what we say doesn’t bother anyone; our mistakes don’t bother others. Then other days, it seems like we inadvertently trigger an apocalypse. The flip side as to our reactions to others is the same as well: Somedays we find what others are doing amusing and its easy to roll with it…other days it grates on our nerves…and we want to tell them with fury exactly how we feel.
These ups and downs of reactions to comparable situations and others are normal. High and low spirits can be counted upon with a regularly almost as dependable as the ocean tides. Circumstances and others merely advance or slightly delay our perfectly normal and regular periods of happy elation or sad feelings of depression. When you’re in a slump, good news gives your spirits a brief boost. Conversely, bad news is only mildly depressing when we’re feeling emotionally high. Some research coincides these mood cycles with moon cycles: our individual low or high spots are likely to develop a pattern and you’ll be feeling the same ways in an up and down way roughly 33 days or so per cycle. For some of us, they are directly related to hormonal cycles. Recognizing the normality of emotional cycles is very helpful. It helps us understand—particularly during the lows…that this too shall pass. There is nothing wrong with you…particularly as you are uniquely you. Try not to confuse your feelings for facts. Instead, be a little kinder and view your moods as your own personal lunar cycles that trigger fascinating emotional tides. This is a much kinder way to treat ourselves.
