This post resonated with me. I once had a friend who told me that I chose to be depressed which is the dumbest stupidest statement on earth. Does a person choose cancer, diabetes, heart attack? Why would I choose to be in the hospital, on pills that don’t work or sometimes spending entire days in bed? No it is not a choice and so little is know about the functioning of the human brain it will be ages before a cure is found.
I think we’ve all experienced emotional jolts at times in our lives. Imagine one moment we feel happy and positive, and then during a conversation someone says something that brings on a sudden feeling of fear, self-consciousness, fury, or the like. Or imagine that you go to your living room and discover your beloved pet is seriously ill, and are later told that he/she needs to be put down.
Powerful emotional jolts can also work in the opposite ways, as well.
