‘A psychologist walked around a room while teaching about stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected that they’d be asked whether the glass was half full or half empty. But instead, the psychologist, with a smile on her face asked, “How heavy is this glass of water?”
This confused the audience. She replied that the absolute weight of the glass did not matter. It all depends on how long she would hold it in her hands. For a minute, there’d be no problem, for an hour, it’d start to ache, for a full day the hand will go numb. In each case the weight of the glass doesn’t change but the longer we hold it, the heavier it becomes.
Just like this experiment, any problem however large or miniscule can affect us. To prevent it, instead of thinking about the problem, we should think about the solution of the problem, so that we might solve it effectively and quickly.’
I think we all can learn so many important things from this. We all carry so much emotional baggage in our lives whether its job related, hobby related or passion related and especially when it comes to love and relationships.
I know that you have been hurt before by someone that left you in pieces. But thinking about it will only make you more miserable. The best way to move on is to actively try to move on. Sooner or later you have a better, stronger and more mature version of yourself in front.
Never forget that you can potentially do great things. But if you suffer from emotional baggage then it will be more difficult for you.
Now go and seize your glory!
