Why do we let other people take over our mood?

I was in a great mood earlier, quite happily just getting on with the usual Sunday chores. Then my husband came home, in a bad mood, it feels like a black cloud is now over my house and now I feel down too. Why does this happen?

Find your good mood again and maybe it will take over your husband's bad mood...

It happens. I don't know why. They don't take over our mood it is just that some of us are sensitivity magnets?

It's because of your sympathy of the person who's in trouble. If you don't to be affected you may ignore it.

@YesWay No other way but to let it go. Just to put it this way: let's mind their own business. Does it sound, rude? Not of course with your hubby. Be considerate for him. Understand him.

I'm sorry. I try not to let my husband's mood bring me down but at times it happens. Usually I try to cheer him up.

@lovingmybabies I am going to bring him a slice of cheesecake to cheer him up. That usually works

I suppose we let it happen. With practice, we can just ignore the moods of others and go on our merry way.

It happens to me too. Either I am the recipient of the black cloud syndrome or others around me. Nevertheless, we always bounce back. ;)

I guess the answer to this question is because we are "human beings".

It is called empathy. We feel for people we care for and empathy is feeling the pain that other's feel even if we never experienced it ourselves. It is a good thing. Because that helps us know that something is wrong and we can try an make them feel better.

I feel the same way with the boyfriend as well. If he is not in a good mood, I feel the same way as well. And often times we end up fighting.

when we allow this, it sure shows our inferiority complex.
