While disliking something, what happens to you? Do you know? What we do not like really consumes our energy. It is evident from this real-life story.
Moly- the wife of my friend always dislikes lizards. When she sees a lizard roaming on the walls, she always feels safe to drive it out of her room. As a result, adrenaline rushes through her brain. She will follow the lizard with a broom and a stick. Finally, she will succeed in driving the lizard out of her room.
Quite aware of these bad habits of his mother, Bunty- the son of my friend thought to tease his mother yesterday at 11 PM. With this in mind, he pointed his finger towards a lizard roaming on the walls and went to bed to sleep. Moly with her usual form and vigour fights with the lizard. The scene goes like this: Bunty sleeping peacefully on couch and Molly chasing the lizard restlessly. Ultimately the lizard ran out.
What she gained in return. She lost her sleep. The lizard consumed all of her energy. She got irritated. It once again proves what we dislike consumes our energy.
Disliking something- what happens
We expend energy in whatever we do. Paying attention is also an activity and we also spend our energy on paying attention to something. Moly does not like the sight of a lizard inside her bungalow. It begins an adrenaline rush in her brain. She chases the lizard, gets tired and becomes restless.
When we pay attention to what we do not like, we only waste our energy on fruitless activities.
