The Problem with Pity Parties

The Problem with Pity Parties



Everybody loves a celebration, the gathering together of friends in a spirited atmosphere of good cheer. Whether you are invited to, or doing the inviting, it's great to let your hair down (so to speak) and enjoy the party. However, some parties have very little to do with celebration, positive energy or enjoyment and should be avoided at all costs. What am I referring to? I'm referring to the pity party.

"The problem with pity parties is very few people come, and those who do don't bring presents."

~Zig Ziglar


The quote above highlights the disadvantages of hosting a pity party. We have probably all experienced a time of apathy and low mood, hoping for the warmth, comfort and compassion of others to lift our spirits once again. However, the problem with having a pity party and inviting others to attend is, no one really wants to join that sort of party.


Now let me get this straight, a pity party is not the same as expressing sorrow, grief or the crippling depression that so many suffer from in silence. Pity parties are more to do with feeling a little sorry for oneself and wanting the permission from others to wallow in those feelings. But watching others complain about what's 'not right' in their lives never draws a big crowd and so pity parties tend to be a solitary affair. Sure you may get to odd person show up for your pity party but it's likely that they won't stay long.


When you're in a place of feeling sorry for yourself, you are 'out of a state of gratitude.' Focusing on all the things you are not happy with is a sure fire way to dampen your spirit and create negative energy. Rather than waiting and hoping for others to join your pity party, why not refocus your attention and energy on all the things you could be grateful for. This simple exercise of writing down 5 things every day that you feel blessed to have in your life is the best gift you could give yourself and will keep those pity parties at bay.


When you feel a pity party coming on, don't write out invites for others to attend, instead make the decision to hold a different type of party, a party that celebrates life and all the joys in it, where you will never be short of guests because everyone loves having a good time in good company at a memorable party.
