“If joy is contagious, let's have an epidemic.”
You probably have come across a situation more than once when you just shine with happiness, want to share this feeling with the whole world, and in response you only get grim looks and disapproval. Why is your inner light so annoying to people living in darkness?
Indeed, this happens all the time. We meet people who are literally filled with light and illuminate everything around, and those who blind us with their darkness and toxicity. The most striking thing is that these toxic “lamps” appear exactly at the moment when we are happy and want to “hug the whole world” - to share our joy with everyone.
“Envy is a thousand times worse than hunger, because it is spiritual hunger,” - Miguel de Unamuno, Spanish philosopher.
In fact, you are absolutely not interested in and not needed by these people - they are very destructive. Indeed, real friends are those who not only offer their support in difficult times, but also share joy and happiness with you.
Light and darkness are part of human nature. Someone has light in their soul, someone has darkness, that is, envy and anger. The problem is that we have to communicate with these "carriers of darkness", and sadly to say - they poison our "light". The light of other people's souls literally hurts their eyes, causes “poisoning” and anger.
The fact is that some people need to take the light from you in order to feel better. Indeed, only evil lives in their soul, and it seems like that instead of blood, envy flows through their veins.
It’s like mushrooms that are seemingly edible, but in fact they are life-threatening. The same thing happens with these evil people: they want our trust, swear eternal love and friendship, but in fact they want only one thing - to poison us. So that we do not shine so brightly.
But if a person is not able to share our happiness, then what are we doing around that person? And the longer you stay with toxic people, the more difficult it is to return to your former state later.
When we have joy in our hearts, we want to share it with those who we think we know well. This is an absolutely normal reaction: I want to tell others that I found it - this little happiness on Earth.
Everyone does it his own way. Someone writes a post on a social network, someone calls and tells the latest news, others write poetry ... There are a lot of ways, but the essence is the same - we want to share our joy with someone, so that he becomes lighter in his soul.
“I'm glad you're glad, I'm glad you're happy,” -
Paul Auster, American writer.
At such moments, stumbling upon dissatisfied glances and envious sniffles - you can probably imagine no worse reactions. You lose joy. The mere expression of the person's face (or intonation) is enough to understand: our joy did not make other person happy. We expected a smile in return, joyful laughter and delight: “Oh, this is just fantastic! Congratulations, buddy! ”
But our light is met by hopeless darkness. The darkness of envy and malevolence. And the light begins to fade... As if someone cut our wings in flight. Emotions fade, joy disappears...
If this situation is repeated with your friend or loved one over and over again - it's time to think about what you actually do with this person. Happiness is indeed contagious, but only for those who also shine from within.
When it comes to "people of darkness" someone else's joy causes discomfort and aggression in them. Just do not think that the whole thing is your fault! It is not. Their unhealthy reaction is associated exclusively with their unhealed personal wounds and complexes.
Your light should shine and illuminate this world with good and joy. And people living in darkness should not interfere with it. Delete them from your life and continue to enjoy life!
