Sometimes I wonder at the forces that contribute to my oft-mercurial mood. There have been times I’ve transitioned from happiness to despair over the course of a few minutes. While that’s an extreme example and one which was the result of external factors, it’s simply a heightened case of my ‘normal’.
What is appropriate when talking about mood anyways? Is it the person who retains the same mood despite external factors? Is it someone whose mood shifts occur over longer periods of time? What is it?
Needless to say, I haven’t figured that out yet either. I’m sure that the way I am now isn’t where I want to be in the future.
