Is there such a notion as being too happy? Today I’ve realised that I’m a bit of glass-half-empty kinda gal and I’m trying to figure out why I’ve been feeling so blue…There’s no need really, I’m29 years old and have the most amazing young family. My finances are in order and there is peace and respect in my house. So what’s the problem? yes, that’s exactly what I keep asking myself and this is the only answer I can come up with:

I’m scared. Not just a little scared, but SHIT SCARED. Scared that my perfect little bubble that I’m working for in my life is going to pop and things will never be the same. It makes it hard to enjoy the now when I’m scared about what the future may bring and I know I must learn to let go but I ask you – how? How do I let go when danger lurks in every corner and the most precious people in my life might be at risk. Loving your family whole-heartedly surely can be a double-edged sword if they are taken away from you, I don’t think I could live with the pain that would bring.
So you see, this is why I have concluded that I must be an empty-glass gal. I’m wondering when shit will hit the fan all the time – it’s bound to, that’s life I guess. Am I preparing or simply paranoid, I’ll let you be the judge of this one.

  • Maybe have a chat with someone like a counsellor; they may be able to help you with strategies for dealing with feeling scared.


  • I get really annoyed with that particular analogy (quirky me). The glass is half empty and half full, the only thing changing is your perspective. If things are going well then cherish this time. If you are scared that it will fall apart try and channel the energy this is costing you into protecting what you have. Think about what you are afraid of and find a way to keep it away. Your family will enjoy you a lot more if you let yourself relax a little bit and enjoy what you’ve got.


  • you sound a lot like me, I see things as more half empty, and waiting for the explosion to happen, I am thankful when it does not, but I cannot shake this impending feeling of doom that has always followed me


  • I would speak to a professional regarding your fears they may be able to help you even if you don’t think you need to. It may help.


  • Well
    i am actually guilty of the same thing all the time… :(


  • Emm… maybe get a hobby? Keep urself occupied and not filled with negative thoughts all the time


  • its very hard not to worry. Enjoy life as it is
