“There are a lot of happy people on this blog, it’s just the general theme and mood of the comments and entries, which just confirms that like attracts like…”
I agree with Charlotte but I think there is another angle, or separate phenomena that goes on here. One that can’t be stopped because it’s a law of nature.
Like definitely attracts like. I am happy, other people who are happy show up here and we validate each other. It’s very similar to how dissatisfied women get together and bitch about their men.
Men are lousy… well yes they are.
That’s that. That’s the bond.
But on the blog we see the concept, “all boats rise”, illustrated.
When the tide is high… when it comes in, all the boats in the harbor rise. They just do. It is not 3 out of 4 boats that rise. It is ALL the boats that rise, some more than others dependent on how heavy they are or how buoyant the individual vessel.
It is for this reason depressed people can benefit from this blog. The tide is coming in all the time around here and if you hang around you will be buoyed very similar to the opposition situation… if you hang around bitching people, you will soon be bitching yourself.
Have you noticed people feel uplifted ’round here?
