Here is another new thing that I’m introducing. Symbolism posts is another idea I came up with. I found that if I wanted to understand my emotions better, I looked at something that was either in front of me or around me. Colors, physical objects, nature, and music have helped me understand how I was feeling when I couldn’t figure it out in my head.
So for the first symbolism post, I thought I talk a bit about the weather. Blue skies, cloudy skies, storms, hot and cold weather all make us feel different things. If you find that you can relate to the weather in terms of how you are feeling or you can’t, either way you’re not alone.
The pic above I found makes people feel down, but it can also make someone feel calm, relaxed, even content. We know there are people who don’t like storms, but there are those who enjoy them. There are people who, when they look at a sky like this, they feel content because the sky reflects how they are feeling perfectly.
This next pic pretty much makes a lot of people feel good. The weather is nice and warm (sometimes too hot). It puts a smile on your face and you feel more energetic and active. You feel more friendly around friends and family and sometimes even strangers. Sometimes the things that bother and annoy you, either don’t bother and know you as much or not at all.
These kind of skies I found make people feel laid back and sometimes bored. Your feelings are sometimes in the middle. Your not really happy but you’re not really sad either; you’re kind of in a weird middle.
A sunrise (above pic) and a sunset (below pic) mostly make people feel good. Contentment is the one thing that people feel the most. I found people like to just stop what they’re doing look up and do some reflecting and even meditating. These kind of pics help get people out of their mind, be in the present, and see the world in a different perspective.
Fall and Winter can uplift our mood, but they also can bring our mood down. This just goes back to preference which is different for everyone. The temperatures can vary between hot and cold which can lift and bring down our mood.
The weather can make us feel great or miserable. The sun helps gives us vitamin D which uplifts our mood. Sometimes during that cloudy weather we don’t get the vitamin D and our mood sometimes isn’t always the best.
We have different kinds of memories when it comes to certain kinds of weather. Those memories, good or bad, can have an impact on how what emotions we will feel and go through. Some people feel more happy and content with stormy and crappy weather and believe it or not there are some people out there who find clear skies and nice weather uncomfortable.
So I hope you found this first symbolism post to be enjoyable. Maybe this provided some clarity on how you can figure out and interpret your emotions better. For the most part, I find the weather to be an outward appearance of how I’m feeling on the inside.
There’ll be more symbolism posts to come. Take care and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.
