Bad moods hit me like summer storms. They’re sudden, devastating and usually short. I’m a roller coaster type of person, with sensational highs and frightening lows. But what my unconscious tries hardest to avoid is boredom.
As emotions are addictive, I unconsciously prefer to feel down rather than neutral. Another option would be to seek happiness but it requires too much effort. It’s way easier to be in a bad mood. So my unconscious has devised schemes to make sure I keep feeling miserable rather than bored.
