A while back, a good friend once told me I was a mood setter; when I'm in my happy zone, I possess that energy that just brightens up everyone’s mood… that the happiness I feel is enough to be distributed among all those around me… that it’s a waste to mope around in depression when I can affect people’s moods that way!!! Thank you friend :) For what it’s worth, those words made me feel better when I needed to. Seriously though?!!!!
I am also affected my other people’s moods. The fact that I am a moody person myself can make me go round and round in circles all day long switching moods between rain, rainbows and sunshine!! I can start out laughing, then burst into tears, then just laugh in the middle of my tears as someone points out how crazy I can get.
My friends got the hang of it!! When I am in a bad mood and I have a frown on my face (which I am starting to realize does not last long enough for some people to notice anyway), all it takes is to point out the irony of something or make fun of the other and I join in.
Yep, I am a moody kookoo; I am surprised my friends like me enough to endure the huge emotional mess I can be, especially that between every grand gesture of friendship and the other, I am usually sarcastic, cynical, and too blunt with my opinions, and most recently, self absorbed and emotionally distant.
Which makes me wonder, who wants to be around THIS??!!!!
