How to be distracted positively? Did you ever give a thought about positive distraction?

Positive Distraction 

 

It has been 4 months, since, my partner broke up with me. From that moment onwards, I’ve been encircled with all the vices known on earth. I never used to smoke, now, I’m a chain smoker; I never used to drink, now, I’m an alcoholic; I never used to cry, now, I weep frequently; I never used to feel low, now, I’m all the time, low. 

A friend of mine is undergoing through the same phase in which I’m in. On the contrary, it seems she has gained vibrancy in her life after the break up. 

 

One of my friend, who’s also a common friend suggested me to visit her. Initially, I hesitated, but, not finding a solution to my turmoil, I decided to heed his advice. 

 

When I entered her house, It wasn’t dull as mine, it wasn’t untidy as mine, it wasn’t reeking as mine. To my surprise, It seems, as If, she’s not worried, she’s more cheerful, she quit smoking, she left alcohol.

 

I wanted to ask the panacea of my deteriorating state, so, I decided to proceed with all the questions, step-by-step. Soon, I found myself asking questions and she was giving me the answers.

 

 

How did you leave smoking?

I prefer exercise instead

 

How did you leave alcohol?

I prefer meditation instead

 

How do you cope up with the inner turmoil?

I eat healthy food instead

 

How do you cope up with the loneliness?

I watch a movie Instead

 

I wasn’t getting answers, I felt like, she was fooling me around.

 

In disgust, I shouted, ‘why’re you distracting me ?’

‘The game is all about distraction, my friend’ , she replied
