I recently read the following quote on the internet:
“Our earth is degenerate in these latter days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book, and the end of the world is evidently approaching.”
The interesting thing is that this inscription was found on a tablet (Assyrian) from 2800 B.C. preserved in Constantinople! I guess the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Pessimism has many components. A person may have a natural proclivity toward either pessimism or optimism. Modeled behaviors and environmental conditions certainly play a significant role. I would assert that adaptability is also a key component. When our nervous system feels overloaded for extended periods, fatigue and pessimism can take hold of our outlook.
Holding excessive sympathetic tone in the body for a long period of time can create a sense of dread. Network Care can help a person to find balance. I’ve had numerous practice members report changes, moving from fear and dread, to a more positive engaging, hopeful perspective. Letting go of old trauma energy creates room for more adaptability, more available energy, and more engagement with the good things in life.
Whether you intend to write a book or not, give me a call for a comprehensive assessment of your nervous system.
