How To NOT Let Others Affect Your Mood Or Happiness
Have you ever been having a good day and then suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere someone makes a passing comment that throws your day off and you are left thinking about it in the shower after a long day. It was the stupid guy who yelled at you at the grocery store, why did he feel like he had a right to cut in line when you were there the whole time.
Sometimes people come with their own baggage, stresses and unhappiness from their lives and look for other people to take it out on, because guess what misery loves company. But you only lose if you give them the power to take away your joy. The way out of this is to not take it personally, do an activity that you enjoy, go about your day, work towards your goals, and if the thought of that mishap pops up again, do not get caught in it, simply take your attention back to the task at hand.
This is particularly important for people pleasers/codependents because of the tendency to attach themselves to how people perceive them combined with their sensitivity to conflict. Each time you catch yourself obsessing over the conflict, keep bringing your attention to your body, your surroundings by staying mindful and eventually the thoughts will not have power of you.
