All Days , Bad Days.... Grim Experience.

How would you feel if the seven days in a week are all bad days. Will it not be disheartening to pass through the precious seven days in tension and disgusting experiences. The past few weeks of mine are like a never ending nightmarish turn of events. Can anyone attribute valid reasons for such prolonged grim experiences.?

When life gives you lemons make lemonaide. I do not have a reason to why you have had a few bad weeks, but maybe if you stard praying things will change.

This could be karma, but knowing that it is karma probably doesn't help at all. As a Zen practitioner, I see karma, not as some sort of punishment, but as an experience I am having in order to learn. I know how difficult this can be, because deciding to follow the way of Zen has created a higher state of awareness of conflicting experiences I have, and it is learning to transcend these experiences that I find valuable. On my profile is a link to my Zen blog if you are interested in knowing more about it. :-)

I can't think of any valid reasons, but I feel the same way. My life is a constant battle and more bad days, than good. I want to just give up, and die sometimes, but I have lots of pets, depending on me. SO I figure that I'll just go on, as long as I can, for them. This old world, is just a good place, for some, and bad place for others. I just happen to be one of those, that gets the bad place.

Since you have not gone into any details of your bad days, I cannot tell you any ideas of why things are so bad for you.I do not believe in luck, or fate, or astrology, or evil spirits, so I will not be saying that, either. I do believe that when things are going badly, I may be in the wrong place, working the wrong job. If the job is right, but things are going poorly I think of two different possibilities: 1. I have not planned well enough, I am disorganized. 2. I am using the wrong tools to meet the goal that I am trying to reach. If those are not the answer, then it may be a problem of personal discipline: I am not eating well, I am not sleeping enough, I am not practicing spiritual disciplines, not having devotions, giving to charity, not praying. Another thought would be that I have unreal expectations.

It would be rather discourging if I would have seven days with the bad feeling. I think that I would try to do some interesting things to forget about the unpleasant things. I hate the bad feeling that quite influences my days like this.

I think most of us know what it's like to hit a bad patch in life - I certainly do anyway. Sometimes life is just like that unfortunately. There are usually no valid reasons for it. I DO think your own attitude and frame of mind can make a big difference though. Negative thoughts have a habit of becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we expect the worst then that's often what we get. However, as I don't know specifically what bad things have happened to you I don't want to lecture you on the power of positive thinking because sometimes that can be pretty irritating and inappropriate. Whatever has happened I hope things improve for you really soon though. I'm sure they will.

Somehow, your previous thinking may have had a hand in creating some of the distress you have encountered. Actually, there is no stress or tension unless you choose to view outside experiences in this manner. To the settled and awake mind, the outside world has no power to upset you or cause you grief (as you know it). You always have the power to react to any outside situation in any way you choose. Seeing things as being in a state of disaster will only cause more of the same to come into your world. No matter the ill or grimness of your situation, there are always two sides or two ways to view it. You might not see this at first, but your choices always come in pairs. View things negatively or from the victim standpoint, or view them from the real you and accept responsibility for your feelings and thoughts. Choose to see events that are helpful to you and those things will eventually come into your life to the degree you consciously choose them.

There are no valid reasons for prolonged bad experiences. I understand exactly what you mean as I have had some weeks where everything turns out wrong. Eventually, things start to go right but it sure takes patience to suffer through those bad days and weeks.

Hi Sukumar!!!how about our betting, Pakistan will win the cup. But yesterday India beat South Africa? OK come back to your discussion. Bad and good just like day and night, Sukumar. Hating the days are no point because nobody will agree to make an extra day to be 8 days in a week. Anyway, don't worry and be happy. :::michael:::

Yeah, I've had 3 straight weeks of bad news at work. It's really tiring, to be honest. but we've had good reasons (product failures, late shipments, etc) that attribute to it. if you are feeling this way for no good reason, that could be a sign you are suffering from depression, and it might be good to talk to a medical professional.

That's happened to me, Not all 7 days though 3-4 days in a roll they didn't go very well.. I couldn't understand why it was either.. I think it was because of what I was doing to make them crummy days.. Lack of sleep will most certainly make a day bad and go bad too.. So I always try to make the best out of something bad...

I've had weeks and months that were like this. Mostly when I was young and in abusive situations, or homeless, or in places that were so dangerous I spent days pinching myself to stay awake because I was afraid to sleep. I am sorry to hear that you are going through a hard time, but I'm not sure there is really any explanation for this. Sometimes one bad experience leads to another, but other times it seems like they all just come flooding in at once for no reason. It seems to only get worse if you lose hope for the future though. I do hope that your experiences are better soon, and that you can be happy. It is horrible to see people suffering.

What helps me the most is drag myself into the shower. Wash my hair also, fix it the way I like best. Pretty up my face with make up. Then find the prettiest dress or outfit in my closet, clear down to the shoes. Then I admire myself in the mirror. I give myself a wonderful smile at pretty I can be. This is my attitude adjustment. Who knows, you may feel so good you may go window shopping at the mall. lol

YES I have also had times like this when I dissapear into a deep depression, when all seems to be going wrong it is hard to think positively about things, but in order to break from this chain of bad thoughts you need to get up think positively and try to change things for yourself, If things are going really bad at the moment adn you feel like you haev hit rock bottom, where I have been before you have to think to yourself that things cannot get any worse than tehy are.

Maybe you need to stop thinking about the bad and think about the good. You got through a day without Dying. You got through the day and did you get to smile once? Did you have a healthy day? Was the sun shining. Did you think you looked nice in the outfit you wore? Find the good in your days. I've had bad months. Its life. You deal with it. You dwell on the bad or you think about the good.

Disgusting and heart rendering events are a part and parcel of every ones life.. and no man is an execption.. But, it all depends how one looks at the problems that he/she is surmounted with. Does he/she keep away from the problem or else take the problem to the heart.. Will worrying Solve the problems one face.. if so one can.. If not, why one must ponder over it ..
