Today’s show is about unhappiness, anger, and illness. I will show you exactly how to take care of this. You don’t want to miss this show!
For the second week in a row, we are recording live on Periscope! So jump on and make sure you are following me @DavidMadow. Also be sure to follow to friends of the show @LisaIllman and @HeavyLover. They both have different styles but also have great positive energy.
As you know, I do this podcast weekly each Monday. For the last two years, I have talked about a lot of stuff. Specifically, I have talked about how important it is to forgive. When you hold in anger, resentment, it’s going to make you unhappy and even worse, ill. If you are holding something inside you have a couple choices. The choices are you can hold it in and be mad at someone or you can let it go. If you hold it in, it will make you sick.
Part of the reason I am talking about this today, is that I encountered a family at my son’s wedding at few weeks ago who for some reason absolutely hate me. They are pissed off at me. This goes back 15 years. At least I think it does, I don’t have any other information. When my ex-wife and I first split 15 years ago, this family took an incredible disliking to me. I have let go of the bitterness, but for some reason this family continues to hate. I can already see signs of illness in this family. It is very very sad. I have tried to make peace with them but for some reason they don’t want to let it go. But it is affecting them in a really bad way. I have tried my best and have tried to persuade them to put it in the past. I have done everything I can to try to make amends with this family. So I realized that I have to release it.
I want to help you! If you have any anger, any hatred, any bad feelings towards anybody, you’ve got to let it go. Again the choices are, to hold in the anger. This doesn’t hurt the other person, it only hurts you. You are holding things inside and there is a decent chance that the stress is going to cause you to get ill. I don’t want to see that happen to ANY of you.
We’re all human beings and we’ve all had problems. We have all had issues in our lives. We’ve all had family members who were tough on us, or friends who crossed us in a bad way, or maybe a business person has taken advantage or done something really bad to us, maybe even really bad things in our lives. We’ve got to forgive and forget. Once you release the negativity and bad energy, you are at peace. I am hoping that everyone listening today and watching on Periscope has released everything. Again, you really only have two choices. Let it go or keep it in!
I have been through some really tough times in my life with business and with a really tough divorce that was very difficult. I went through some really tough times trying to find myself and figure out what I wanted in life. But once you find it, life is incredible. I am 60 years old so I have been through a lot! I don’t want to tell you that my life has been horrible, my life has been pretty good. But I have had tough times.
Periscope Question: Does this family acknowledge their misery, them versus the world?
Dr. Dave: I don’t want to say anything bad about them. I don’t hold any grudges. I don’t have any anger inside of me, I really don’t. What I will say is, I observe them very carefully. I am very perceptive. In this family, I see sadness. I see that they feel like they have to conform and be like everybody else. I see them on the dance floor going through the motions and not really wanting to be there. I see them acting for other people. I don’t see true happiness and so I can understand how people like this can hold in anger, frustration, and hate. There is not a cell in my body that hates anybody. I have learned to let it go. I meditate, I do yoga, I move my body, and I eat a plant based diet. I stopped owning their issues. There was a time when I tried to be nice and do what I could to make this family like me. Those days are gone. They can continue to hate. I will go on record as saying this right now. I am happy. I am living the life I want to live every single day. They can choose to change but I think they are stuck, they don’t know what to do, and they are confused.
I talked to someone this past weekend, whose father does not talk to his own mother. It has been like 30 to 40 years! I told my friend, can you talk to your father? Is there any way at all to just have him let it go? No matter what was done, no matter what kind of wrong was done upon him. Can you just forgive or even just let it go? And his response was that he doesn’t think he can. I felt so bad hearing that. Because there is going to come a time when it takes a toll on his body. It’s not worth it! It’s really not!
People do crazy things in life. People are going to do bad things to you, they are going to say bad things, they are going to lie, they are going to cross you the wrong way, you are going to have bad business deals, you are going to have lovers or spouses do things to you that aren’t right. We only have a certain amount of control over others. If their lives are horrible, if they are stuck in their lives and can’t forgive, if they are sad, if they are unhappy, there is only so much you can do.
Don’t be angry but if for some reason someone can’t let go of their angry feelings towards you “photoshop” them out of your life. You don’t want their negative feelings being reflected on you. Don’t worry about them, don’t be angry at them, don’t hold a grudge. Just “photoshop” them out of your life.
We are living great lives. I am living my best life ever! I deal with great people all day long. I make decent money. My life is good. And trust me it’s not all about money. If you can make decent money doing what you love then that’s fantastic.
There is nothing in life that I feel stronger about than happiness!
If I helped one person today, it made my day! Based on the interaction on today’s show, I have a feeling I have helped more than one 🙂
