The Dark Side

CreepyPants
Dark moods can be hard. Particularly of the capricorn variety. So let's talk about it.

They are amazingly hard to navigate, are they not? they deserve a lot of attention, introspection, assessment, psycho-analysis, etc...

BUT ...not to the point of glorification! I think we can all agree about that. It's one of our more obvious traits. Mysterious I suppose. It eludes even ourselves. But let's face... it sucks. REALLY. BAD.

what are some of the triggers you've pinpointed? something emotional? embarrassing? hurtful? something you did to yourself perhaps? a choice you made and regret? something completely out of your control?

how deep do you sink? what do you do to come back to the light? how much do you close yourself off? how hard has it been in some instances to snap out of it?

I'm not sure about the rest of the dxp cap community but this is something that happens on the regular with me. i always get this feeling that the perfect life is the only thing that would keep me from these moods... that honestly feel very destructive to me.

that said... if it's a part of me that will just keep happening... better ways of coping are in order...

The only thing that stands out to me in my limited experience with Cappies, is their uncontrollable sadness. They appear to fall into depths of depression, without much, if any, power to stop themselves.

Then I realized that in their despair is where they grow .... so, this State of Being is imperative for them, if they expect to grasp understandings of their life.




Do you guys feel that you grow in these moods?





In many of them, I feel I do grow. but some of them, I feel were just a complete waste of my damn time... in which case a feeling of self-loathing has become another emotion that I have to nip in the bud somehow.

I hear ya! I get like this too. Something hurtful, most likely imagined, will happen and my mind starts to overthink and think some more. It's like a virus of negative thoughts that just build off each other and multiply. Eventually, I analyze my way through it and am okay again.

I usually do grow from it. Mostly it is the realization that things are actually pretty good and life is not as bad as what my mind conjured up what it could be through that dark time. Without the dark thoughts, I don't think I would appreciate the good, positive and happy things.

I am continually trying to challenge myself to find the positive in everything as a preventative measure, but sometimes the negative wins and the process begins.

whoever said "you are your own worst enemy" HAD to have been a capricorn.

i try to analyze my way through negativity too, truecap, but as much as i try to come off positive and content... sometimes i'm fighting a battle. and sometimes i'm losing it.

very true... it's never AS bad as I'm making it out to be for myself. ever. and when i'm in the pits of one of these moods, i try to remind myself that.

what's been saving me lately is simply not caring, or caring much much less, about my own standards. caring is damn exhausting.

...or my standards are exhausting.

Ive just come to accept that it will most likely always be a part of my nature. I never feel 100% and half the time I dont allow that for myself. The worst feeling is not being able to pinpoint it, but that lets me know its out of my control, so what can you do but ride the wave?

Even if i had everything i wanted, i dont see that making me feel much different. Life is too unpredictable. At any moment a rug can be pulled from under and completely alter your reality. Maybe thats where it stems from. The constant reminder that you can never ever get too comfortable...with anything or anyone. It all can be taken away at any moment. I think many of us almost prepare for it.

Quote from the astrology

Loneliness affects them dramatically

--
It's not bad that it's bad. It's bad that bad life is ok life for most of the people around.
So treat pplz like a **** They deserve it.

You don't want so much drama for anything. People want so much drama for everything coz that is the only thang

they can get.

So don't be dark. I can't stand it.

In the words of Chumba wumba, "I get knocked down, but I get up again..." Lol.

The sadness does knock me down for a day or so. And I get mean, distant, and cold, so I'm told, but when I snap out if it, I'm ready to do something to change my situation, and I move into action and come out better than before.

Astrologers seem to be in general agreement that Saturn's children have the depths of despair thing locked up.

Every moment is an opportunity; an opportunity to succeed, as much as it is to fail. How you choose to cope with the opportunities presented to you is how you prove your worth. No one or thing has any more power to cause your fall than it does the power to arrest it. If you feel some of these opportunities have been a waste, ask yourself what you missed. There was a lesson there for you. In fact, it's still there, waiting with Saturn's renowned patience for you to recognise it.

P-Angel was mostly right, but we have all the power we need to stop our fall and see our way back into the light. Self loathing is always self destructive, whereas self criticism can be self constructive. Make the conscious choice to follow the latter path. Until you have learned to respond positively to your own criticism, there is little point in listening to anyone else's.

Don't lower your standards. Accepting less than the best for you weakens you. Hold out for the best...and be aware that you likely won't recognise it when it first crosses your path.

Because you appear to be in your Mint Period, I got this lovely flying rabbit for you. I thought it would make the perfect compliment.
