The first time I came across the idea of unlucky and unhappy was about two years ago when I was reading the book ‘The 48 Laws of Power’ by Robert Greene. We’ve not been taught how certain human behaviours can have a negative impact in our lives. The unlucky and unhappy generally label themselves that way to get attention and power.
You can die from someone else’s misery; emotional states are as infectious as disease. One of the rules of the universe is to help others, but not to be enslaved by their problems. Helping others feel good but you need to understand the principle that guides against the unlucky and unhappy.
The unlucky can be infectious; we all go through misfortune and often being brought down by circumstances beyond our control, these individuals deserve all the help and sympathy we can give them. Yet there are others who are not born by misfortune or unhappiness but who draw it upon themselves by their destructive habits. It will be a good thing to raise them up and change their patterns; more than not it’s their pattern that end up getting inside and changing others. Don’t get too close to them, and always maintain your ground and distance.
I need you to understand that this is a game of power, the people you associate with are critical. If you hang around too long with sad people you become sad also. The answer is to judge people on the effects they have on the world.
There are people who attract happiness to themselves by their good nature; a natural buoyancy and intelligence, they are a source of pleasure. You must find these people and associate with them. Never associate with those who share your defects because they will reinforce everything that holds you back. Always associate with people who will lift you up. Make this a rule of your life and you will benefit more than all the therapy in the world. Thank you for reading.
