I started to write about positive thinking and as the day went by and things happened, I changed my mind. Today I want to write about yo-yo’s.
I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I was OBSESSED with the yo-yo. It went up and down and “around the world.” I “Walked the dog” and did the swinging the yo-yo between the triangle thing. I was into it! But today I wanted to talk about something that yo-yo’s and people have in common and that’s the up and down and up and down and up and down.
Tonight consisted of a lot of up and down emotions for me. One minute I’m doing good, the next minute I’m upset, the next minute I’m fine, then someone says something and I’m upset again. Just talking about it is exhausting! But after a moment of yo-yoing emotions it dawned on me how crucial it is for me to stop letting my circumstances and the people around me dictate if I am feeling up or down.
I love to be there for loved ones in every way possible BUT I have begun to learn that a line has to be drawn because if not even our loved ones can push too far, need too much, or begin to treat us in ways that we don’t want to be treated causing us to have a rollercoaster of emotions.
I’m not going to stop loving those around me but I’ve decided it’s my mission to learn to become more emotionally stable and not let those around me dictate how I am going to feel for the day.
