Mood Swings Quotes

1. “Have you ever noticed how some people seem to shift between different emotions and often rather quickly? Although such a thing isn’t very common, it is still deserving of attention as an individual may not be in the ideal state of mind and is therefore in need of help. These conditions are known as mood swings”— Chantal Jones

2. “By tracing dramatic mood swings, we can gather valuable clues that unlock many of the mysteries of human motivation. Simply ask yourself, “When I think about that undone task, what thoughts immediately come to mind?” Then write those thoughts down on a piece of paper.

You will learn that the feelings that impede your motivation, such as apathy, anxiety, or the sense of being overwhelmed, are the result of distortions in your thinking.”— David D. Burns

5. “A mood swing is defined as the change in a person’s emotional state.  Everyone can have them and occasional mood swings are considered normal.

As your depression improves, these symptoms will in all likelihood vanish.”— David D. Burns

Mental health professionals can also offer education and support to help an individual to adjust to what has happened to them.”—Jan Scott
