This question stems from the fact that I've been surrounded by a few Eeyores lately. You know, Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? He's the donkey that's always depressed about something. His whole demeanor is always in this sad disposition, even when he's trying to be happy.
Do you know some Eeyores out there? Or maybe you're the Eeyore in your group? I mean chances are, if you can't locate the Eeyore in your group of friends, you're it. Sorry. I do it because I care.
Your personality affects an atmosphere. And may be the reason you attract or repel friends.
And what if you are an Eeyore? Will you ever get out of your slump? I'm hopeful for you, but only time will tell. You have to work doubly hard to feel at rest and at peace with yourself don't you? But once you get to that place of rest and peace, the more jovial side of your personality begins to shine.
Perhaps you've had Eeyore tendencies for as long as you can remember. (Note: No one wants to be around a party pooper or an atmosphere drainer.) But don't let that deter you. Take it one day at a time, and choose to enjoy the little things. Be thankful Now. Don't wait to be happy.
To my fellow Eeyores out there, I have mad love for you, really I do--Although sometimes you GET ON MY NERVES, but mostly you help me grow in Patience. See, that was me being Thankful Now, and not waiting to be happy later, when I'm no longer surrounded by Eeyores.
And remember, admitting you have Eeyore type tendencies, is the first step to recovery. You don't have to stay in that place.
Be thankful now. Don't wait to be happy.
