Roller coasters are super fun when they are a ride you choose to hop on… but they are not fun when they describe the conditions of your life!
If you are making lots of positive changes and find yourself starting to backslide, lose your footing or just fully and completely get immersed in drama from out of seemingly nowhere, this video might help you find the reason why. I certainly have been on a roller coaster and didn’t know why… I mean, for all the good things I was doing for myself I would suddenly be confused, unsure of myself, weirdly sad for no reason…
And then I learned about the effects of passive aggression.
I’ve had lots of experience with this stuff of life roller coasters. I’ve taken classes, sought all sorts of spiritual and psychological guidance to learn more about it. Ultimately, I just had to become aware of my own decisions and look at the people and situations in my life with fresh eyes and take responsibility for what and who I decided to keep close to me. When I put myself in the driver’s seat and started making decisions to surround myself with happiness, stuff got way more calm.
You should never ever ever ever feel bad about making positive decisions for yourself and treating yourself well. You should never feel bad for being happy. And you certainly should not give up your dreams for other people who might still not be ready to pursue their own.
Here’s a bunch of ways I’ve come to spot the passive aggressive stuff looming around me. If you are on an emotional roller coaster and have no good reason to explain exactly why, this might be worth a look. You may not be “over emotional”… you might just need to detox your life a little bit more!
