You know the situation where you have some really good and exiting news you want to share with a loved one, a good friend or other? Yes – right 😊 and then, when you tell the news it is just not received in the “right way”…the “right way” being the way that you have anticipated it 😊 and maybe needed it to be received. It ends up making you sad and questionable and maybe insecure. What just happened? Why is he/she not as excited as I am…what is wrong? Was it something I said? Or how I said it? A million questions rushes through your head and your feelings are more or less in a mess… 😊
So What to do? Personally, I judge myself pretty hard and my imagination runs off with me. I sometimes let my ego run around with me…and start to invent stupid stories…
But this is the time when I (you) should take a moment and start the moment with a deep breath. Breathe in and breathe out. Focus on the beauty around you, within you. Work with shifting your mindset…and let it go. If you need to, breathe in and out several times.
Your expectations were not meet – yes, that is true – but this does not mean that the other person is not as happy about the news as you are. The person in front of you just chose – unconsciously (for various reasons) to react differently…differently from what you needed and had in mind. That´s all. Nothing more, nothing less. Try to not put more judgement to it than that.
Easy to say and soooo hard to do, yes, but tell your beautiful ego that:
It´s ok – it´s all good ❤️
