Aries 1-2 A Comedian Entertaining A Group

I clicked on a oracle asking what I needed to let go of and got this symbol. I understood this to mean that I was so attached to the ego part of me that likes to be the "funny" person, who can turn negative situations into comedies, the person that people gravitate to because I am the one with a smile on my face while things look dark. While this is a fantastic coping mechanism, in fact I had started to become addicted to negativity in order to "show my light". I became interested in the problems people had in order to be the positive influence on someone. The thing is, inviting people to talk about their problems brings us both down, because the person was more than their problems, and I only wanted to show my light if they were in the dark. This can be suffocating for the other person, and also exhausting for me. It was ego and it wasn't doing me any favours. I was addicted to that idea of myself, and needed darkness around me to perform. It is a fine line between humour and positivity as a coping mechanism, and over-identifiying with it as a personality. I needed to let this go, and just to see the beauty in everything. If someone had a problem, then just accept it and let it and myself go (rather than making a joke and giving advice and being an exhausted smiling do-gooder). I needed to find the beauty in things that were natural e.g. a kangaroo joey eating grass out of the pouch, to see the natural joy in things rather than finding comedy in negative moments. Sure every cloud has a silver lining, but silver doesn't have to have a cloud to be silver. I needed to try to focus on things that were just lovely, and appreciate them more, rather than have my ego make me "work" by ferreting out negativity. It took a while, a little retraining, but I can see now how I am not attracting negativity now. My partner (who I hooked into because he has a negative energy) is now starting to realise his own negativity. As I have changed, so has he! I didn't realise I had "made" him stay negative because of my own ego-glamor. Whoops! Sorry!
