I am not in the mood

I am not in the mood

Why do we sometimes feel like doing something then few moments later feel that we are not in the mood?

Why do we sometimes feel that we are not in the mood to hang out or see our friends even though we were eager to do it few moments ago?

The human mind was designed in such a way that it goes after rewards and avoids possible punishments, If for some reason it felt that doing a certain action will result in some kind of pain then it won't feel like doing it.

Emotional wounds lead to quick mood swings

Sam has got a self image problem and he sometimes feels that he is not attractive. Sam was excited about hanging out with his friends but while he was on his way to meet them he met an old friend who told him that he has gained a lot of weight lately.

The critical comment Sam got reminded him of one of his emotional wounds which is the self image problem. At this point Sam didn’t feel like hanging out with his friends and he started driving back towards his home!!

This means that if you suddenly felt bad without any apparent reason then you must look for such emotional wounds.

In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i explained how emotional wounds can be one of the main causes of depression if not dealt with. The more wounds you have the more likely you will get depressed unless you take actions to heal them.

This is why you are in the mood

In the previous story Sam knew why he wasn’t in the mood because both the mood change and the wound were so obvious but in real life the numerous wounds we have prevent us from determining which situation exactly has resulted in the mood change we experienced. (see What causes mood swings).

You must learn how to understand yourself and your emotional wounds so that you don’t find yourself suddenly feeling bad without understanding what happened. Events that are as simple as seeing a certain picture on your way back home can result in changing your mood without you even noticing.

When you get this kind of understanding you will be able to spot the events that cause a change in your mood and you will be able to prevent them before they even happen.

Healing your emotional wounds won’t only prevent you from suddenly feeling bad but it will also make you less vulnerable to criticism and will make your life happier. (see What is true happiness).
