Hi guys, I'm finding that I often hop between two extremes of seeing the world as the most amazing, incredibly beautiful and fascinating place and then being absolutely disgusted with the selfish and superficial aspirations of so many people and the environmental degradation and war and poverty and all the rest of that lovely depressing bullshit.
When I'm in a good place and surrounded by great people I am in my "life is hilarious" mode and will accept a lot of things I won't accept in my other mood. Life is so much fun in this mood and everything is interesting and coincidental and beautiful and hilarious. The severity of my mood problems are often played down to barely recognizing it as a problem because I feel so lucky to be healthy and live in the developed world.
However, when things are not so great or a particular event acts as a trigger, I will revert back to the depressed apocalyptic mood.
Some may say this is normal and human etc, but I'm really finding two absolute polar extremes and I feel like a different person at each end of the spectrum. I definitely see some of the "dark side" qualities mentioned in another post like being overly critical.
Does anyone else relate at all?
