It might be very well likely that you are affected by negative energy in your body and that is why you are unable to experience joy. There can be times when everything seems alright apparently and yet you can’t feel happy. You are continually feeling miserable and you cannot fathom the reason behind it.
There are various ways by which negative energy can make its way into our lives. Spending too much time with negative people being one of them.
Likewise, it is advisable not to be overwhelmed by the sheer arbitrariness of this phenomenon because it is not what you think.
If you devote some time and try to analyze your life, you can very well figure out the reasons and rid yourself of the negativity that has been plaguing you.
Here are signs to determine if you are being affected by negative energy:
1. You find it difficult getting sleep
It becomes extremely difficult to fall asleep if you have negative thoughts and worries plaguing you constantly. Whenever you close your eyes you are being stressed out by various anxieties. And the more time you spend thinking about these things the more they affect you.
2. You take criticism a bit too seriously
Not all people criticize you to be rude to you. Rather than being demoralized and demotivated think of it as an opportunity to correct your flaws and grow.
3. You are excessively emotional
You tend to be swayed by emotions a bit too often. Emotions sweep you off your feet and you lose awareness of who you are.
But it’s time you tried controlling your emotions rather than let them control you. Whenever you feel that something is a bit off practice mindfulness or start writing journal to gain clarity over what’s going on in your life. If that doesn’t work, you should talk to a therapist.
4. You rarely move out of your comfort zone
Fear of judgment and pessimism has led you to lock yourself up in your room. Rarely do you venture out into the world and interact with new people. You better realize that you cannot get anything done if you just sit in your room and do nothing.
5. Nothing excites you anymore
You only have memories of a past where there were several things that you liked doing and you derived immense pleasure out of them. But all of that seems too distant now. Nothing makes you happy anymore.
6. You are in a perpetual state of worry
You cannot find a moment of peace where you won’t have worries bothering you at the back of your head. You are in this unending struggle against these worries and you fail to overcome it every time.
When your mind is flooded with negative thoughts and you are sad or angry, then it is manifested as restlessness or tension.
7. It takes you no time for you to compare yourself to others
You obsess over your flaws and shortcomings. More often than not, you are judging yourself too hard. You need to accept that everyone has flaws and it is human to commit errors. No one is perfect.
8. Others tell you what to do
The best person to tell you what you need is you yourself. No one knows you better than you yourself. If you somehow believe that you will find happiness by doing what others tell you to, you can’t be any more wrong.
9. You cannot understand why everything affects you too deeply
While you are living in your shell worrying over things, time is passing by. You are losing out a lot on life and you can never get the lost time back. You need to make yourself immune to the negativity. Take a break if you can.
10. You are exhausted all the time
All the anxiety and stress drains the vitality out of you. Rarely you feel energetic and enthusiastic. The negative thinking has started taking a toll on your health.
