The upward spiral
June 11, 2021
Many people talk about a downward spiral that they themselves have experienced, or indeed, witnessing others do it. This is on an emotional level and regularly moving down the spiral can lead to depression, anxiety, issues of self-worth, not improving your insecurities etc.
It is possible to be a person who can move up the spiral - in a positive way, where you can allow yourself to feel important guiding emotions such as sadness, anger, jealousy - then consciously make a decision that you don't wish to remain there and find ways to move yourself up.
This doesn't mean you go from sadness to joy in a second ( although this is achieveable), but it does mean making the effort to incrementally move yourself towards a better feeling place.
