Unlike most of the post on this blog this is not my first-hand experience, rather the second-hand one. I mean the bad mood thing. Strangely enough I have never ever had the so-called “bad mood”, throughout my life I keep up a certain level of peaceful and a bit cheerful mood, and it never changes. It may look strange, but this is the way I am born with.
The phenomenon of the bad mood has been always puzzling me. While observing it by other people I has been always wondering how can it happen, what causes this malice? At the first sight it looks like a clearly emotional problem. However with some analysis one can see another coherency…
With the help of some moody friends I came to quite an interesting conclusion. The bad mood has nothing to do with emotions! It is directly derived from the Mr.Ego/or expectaions/conditiongs! We analysed many situation when all of a sudden the persons would fall into the band mood and it came out that nothing happened “all of a sudden”. There has always been some mental irritation, like someone has scratched the ego of a person. Either one felt not appreciated enough, or else, but there has always been some mental reason.
May be some you would not agree, then your experience-oriented comments are more than welcome! For me this realization is a great evidence how huge the impact of our ego can be – in every sphere of life, even where we normally suggest only emotions – verily, all problems come from our head :).
