Negative Emotions are Good

Negative emotions are call to action. If we feel them it means we are supposed to do something. Solution lies in the acceptance and active engagement of negative emotions not the avoidance of it. Similarly, don't avoid or deny your problems, instead solve them.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE BOOK

If you constantly give too many fucks, it means that you don't have much going on in your life to give a real fuck about. Maturity is when we become selective in the fucks we give. If we give better fucks, we get better problems and better problems lead to a better life

What we consider life-problems are just the side effects of not having more important to worry about.

Solution to emotional health lies in accepting the simple truths of life such as: our actions usually don't matter in the grand scheme of things and most of our life will be boring.

If you accept these truths you will feel more present and alive because the pressure to be something special and amazing will be lifted of your back. You will be able to enjoy the little things like a simple friendship, reading a book, helping someone or laughing with someone you care about.

How to really mess up your problem: with real life methods:

There are majorly two ways to really really mess up your problem. Any one of these is enough to make your life miserable.

  1. Denial of your problem:
  • The first step to actually start entangling your problem, is to deny that you have one. This thing, you can do when you just realise that you have a problem.

2. The victim mentality:

  • The second step, after you get into one problem, is blaming the outside circumstances for it. Remember, no outsider can be responsible for your inside chaos.

The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience.
