I always feel upset when everything is fine because of the mental illnesses I have and the way I was born. It is not my fault that I overthink or have mood swings. My depression comes in unexpected waves that bury me deep within the sand. Whether I just got a new car or won a million dollars, my unexpected depression will always be there. This is not my fault.
Maybe because you feel like you don't deserve to be happy which is because something happend to you and you are afraid of being disappointed again or you did something bad and now you fell like punishing yourself,
If you find yourself feeling this way there's a great possibility you are feeling like maybe there's something missing.
I think it happens a lot to me too. If I have nothing to do, I am easily upset, I become more emotional. But when I am busy, I am happy. So I always try to be as busy as I can to be happy. Sometimes it's not always what people thin about you. You have to try to be the better you. Accept your flaws, be grateful for what you have, make everyday counts. I think it's all cliche but I've felt those all.
Because you are afraid that whenever you're happy, something bad happens. When everything goes fine, you wait for an upcoming storm.
Do you think that what you may be experiencing is depression? If you believe that this is the case, then I would advise speaking with a therapist or psychiatrist. Speaking with them may help you figure out the root of your unhappiness as well as ways to reduce/eliminate the negative feelings that you have. Sometimes, even though we may have everything that we can possibly need, we still feel an underlying sense of emptiness and/or dread. It isn't that we are not grateful for what we have, but it feels as if something is just not right.
sometimes you want to take refuge in your problems although they are so irresistible and they are so unbearable. Sometimes you can not find a convenient solution except for this.
It can be hard to deal with emotions when you aren't even sure where they are coming from and why you feel that way. If you feel that your emotions are consuming you or are interfering with your life, then you might find it best to seek the advice of a trained counselor or therapist.
It could be that you are not in touch with your emotions, the ones that make you upset. We sometimes think we should be fine because externally, everything seems in order, in its right place. But, often the reality is that there is something, possibly not in our awareness or conscious that acts as a splinter in our mind, wiggling around in there, suggesting something needs to be dealt with. Maybe sit quietly somewhere and just be for a few minutes. Something may bubble up to the surface that you can then consciously address.
Honestly this is a very difficult question, as everyone at some point in time feels just as you describe. The feeling of knowing that everything is, and will be okay. But feeling upset for unknown reasons. This is normal and okay. You could be feeling this way because something traumatic or really upsetting has occurred. Something that you never thought was ever going to happen. Reassurance is the best key of helping in this type of feeling. Feel free to talk to someone and communicate to how you feel, and if you can the experience's from the past that may make you feel this way.
Maybe cause I overthink every situation alot that makes all the fun disappear. Happiness seems to be temporarily, and we cherish the sad life. I feel everything is not according to my needs and that upsets my behavior. However, I could overcome this attitude by taking a breath. Stop stretching out every situation and let it be the way it is cause their are some situations that are not in our control and some we can. Mostly we think about the situation or people and try to overthink about how worse it went. That just hits the bar, but it could be controlled.
Sometimes we train ourselves to make sure that things are fine, and to be upset until we prove otherwise.
There is a part of your brain that deals with emotions and after a while it gets overwhelmed. This causes you to be sad and upset sometimes.
it could be an imbalance of hormones in the brain. this can cause depression etc that can be the cause of feeling upset although everything is fine.
We may feel upset sometimes even if nothing has happened. It usually is because there is a situation that we have not handled or the anger is masking other feelings, like sadness or anxiety. Taking a step back to reflect on our lives can help us identify the real cause behind our feelings, and addressing it can improve our lives very much.
Sometimes we feel really upset even though everything seems fine for us. Take some good rest and really nice care of yourself. It’s okay to feel upset. Just experience and feel that feeling fully.
This sounds like depression or anxiety of some sort. Seeking therapy may help, but also look into self strengthening exercises such as meditation. If it’s really bad, which I hope it’s not, then definitely seek therapy right away. But if you just have sad days, like the most of us, definitely look into self strengthening. I personally love going to the gym to help with stress and anxiety that could make me feel down. Also, keep out of toxic relationships and situations! Don’t put yourself in upsetting situations to prevent from being upset, if possible. If you are in a upsetting situation, come talk on here, talk to a friend, or practice a self calming exercise. Remember you are your own hero sometimes.
Sometimes our brain can make us feel a certain way, even when nothing is wrong around us. It is okay to feel a certain emotion. You are not alone. Try to surround yourself with things you love and enjoy. Sometimes you may need to surround yourself with extra positivity to get out of any rut you may be in. Sometimes even something that seems so small can make us feel a certain way, It is important to know you are not alone and sometimes it is normal to feel this way. I love going out in the fresh air when I feel this way.
