Happy Bubble

The Logical Heart Knows Best

It’s so much. I can see why we need to retreat into a happy bubble just so we can get our bearings again, so we won’t be swallowed up, so we can stay functional.

What if we all stayed in our happy bubbles all the time, though? Is everyone able to create a happy bubble, or is it a luxury that only some of us can afford?

I could choose to avoid the news, avoid social media or tailor my online stream to show only positivity. I could focus only on positive, high-vibed thoughts and feelings. I could tell everyone around me I only want to hear supportive, positive things, no criticisms, no complaints, no negative observations.

I could reframe everything so that there’s a silver lining, a beneficial reason, and disallow any uncomfortable or low-vibed, negative thoughts and feelings. I can spend my time on self-care, making sure I stay productive, healthy and creating what brings me joy. My world will be safe, happy, and nurturing for me and those I interact with because I proactively control myself, my environment and selectively choose every aspect I can.

Theoretically, I can stay in my safe haven by creating my own happy bubble where I filter everything so that I see and interact with only what I want to experience. I could practice the method of… I can choose how I will respond to everything and can always be peaceful, happy and free.

In effect, there is no reason to change one thing about the world because I’m okay no matter what, nothing can touch me. I can tune out any negativity or not react to it, ignore it, avoid it, not engage, detach. It can be there, but I’m like happy Teflon, unphased. The world can implode, but I’m lovely in my happy bubble, lol. La la la la laaaaaa!!! Don’t make the negativity more real by interacting with it, let it go, and just be happy. Don’t get involved with it, because that just makes more of it. You know the law of attraction and all. It’s all temporary, so why not do whatever is most peaceful, easy for me, the path of least resistance?

What if we all happy bubbled?

I don’t know? It doesn’t seem very empathetic and contributes to complacency and complicity. If we don’t have compassion and honor all of our feelings and act upon what our negative feelings/observations are guiding us to correct, then doesn’t that lead to sociopathy, dissociation, or being exploited?

I believe our negative feelings help guide us to help ourselves and one another to correct and heal the aspects in our lives and our world that are hurtful and not for our highest good. When we overdo the happy bubbling, we stagnate and the world gets even more chaotic. We become too passive and we can’t have our happy dream of a world.

There’s gotta be a balancing of happy bubble time with kick-butt action, correction time. So that more of us have the luxury of retreating into our happy bubbles. Not everyone has their own house, yard, plentiful food, savings, health care, basic needs, safe environment where they are at the top of the hierarchy so they can attain everything to their specifications.

There has to be some interaction with that discomfort you feel when you see disparity, tragedy, inequality or abuse to be motivated to help others, to help yourself, to get fired up and do something about it. I tried to stay in my happy bubble while in an abusive relationship. It doesn’t work, lol.

We are in an abusive relationship with the powers that be.

What are we gonna do about it? It feels so daunting to me. I try to happy bubble, but it ain’t working for me. So that’s why I blog, that’s why I keep educating myself, I keep working on my personal development so I will be more capable and take a stab at doing something that helps. I want the highest good for everyone and this world. I want to help create that.

Hey, maybe we can create a world that’s one big happy bubble one day.
