"You're supposed to be happy all the time...right?" A lot of people get into the personal development industry or the new age market...and they draw a lot of surface level conclusions which lead to severe misunderstandings of the truths which are taught.
One of these is the idea that you are supposed to be happy...always. And if you're not, you're doing something wrong.
Or that you're supposed to have energy...always. And if you're not, you're doing something wrong.
The problem with that thinking is that it's just not how life is.
Think about the seasons for a moment... there is a season for birth, a season for maturing, a season for dying, and a season for death. You breathe in, and you exhale. Plants produce seeds...which must die in order to produce more life.
You did not come here to be happy all of the time.
You came to experience sadness, sorrow, anger, fear, uncertainty...and to overcome them.
And yes, you very much intended to be happy, but you WANTED to experience contrast so that you...and the universe along with you...could expand.
In this Three Dimensional reality...for so long as it is Three Dimensional...when sorrow surfaces, it is necessary that you deal with it. When fear taunts, it is necessary that you face it. When Depression wraps its claws around your chest, it is necessary that you take the time to find its source and root it out.
You don't have to choose happiness all the time...you can sit with pain or fury long enough to heal what caused it.
And yes, if you use energy...of any kind, for any reason...you will require rest.
It's okay to NOT be happy.
It's okay to be tired.
It's okay to take a week or a month or a year and just pull back from society and work on yourself.
If all of nature has cycles... maybe it's time that we, as humans, start honoring ours...instead of fighting them.
