Just to make it clear that I’m not spending all of my time drinking and looking at lolcats, I would like to add that breaking up tends to be a great impetus for self improvement. At least, that’s been my experience.
It is good to get jolted out of complacency, break routines and cycles, and live in such a way as to to cognizant of even trivial things. Being present and living in an examined fashion is necessary for any success or happiness to proceed. At least for me- I am not happy with stagnation. As unfun as, say, ending a relationship is, I really do believe that if nothing bad ever happened to us we would not be very effective humans. Adaptation and learning need necessity.
As such, I’ve been animated with this feeling of ambition and confidence in the last twenty four hours that seems silly on the face of it. I’ve been feeling more social, more able to work, and even better able to sit down and pay attention to things. I have had extended conversations with strangers, and felt perfectly alright about it. This is curious. One would think that being spurned by a lover would have the opposite effect.
In any case, I’m happy to respond to undesirable instances with something like a plan, or attitude of ambition. This is not to say that I’m happy about recent events- I’m not- but it is very possible to derive positive outcomes from things like this.
In other words, life is not completely in the Sad Panda realm. The Sad Panda is making himself very, very busy.
