You can’t always trust everything you feel. I think we have all been in that situation before. I remember being convinced I would get at least one SAMA nomination. Shit, I felt it in every bone in my body and when the SAMA people followed me on Twitter I though “fook, it’s just a matter of time”. Of course nothing happened and for at least 10 minutes on the 4th of March I felt really shit.
Then I remembered something a good friend said. “Always ask yourself if what you are feeling is really true.” Don’t you just hate it when people say cool and very profound stuff – after the fact? What he wanted me to do was get some distance so I could understand why I felt what I felt so strongly. If only I did this before the SAMA debacle I would have spared myself a lot of drama…lol!
Emotions are like a bladdy drug – especially the negative ones. They can make you loose your footing and do the craziest things. This is why I have decided to always be more honest with myself. Seriously though many times we don’t even question the validity of what we feel. The biggest problem is those feeling feel so real to you
If I am angry about a thing I have to ask myself what I am really angry about and then try to dissect the how’s and the why’s. If I really don’t get it I call up a friend and ask for insight. That usually works. Sometimes I reckon you just have to stop - take your head out of your ass and question if whether what you feel is real because sometimes it can be the biggest load of bullshit…lol!
