Quick Definition: An event that happens which completely changes your emotional state in a negative way.
State crashes can happen for a variety of reasons. Let’s say your good friend got fired today. You feel bad for him. Of course, bad events happen in life that can cause state crashes.
- Finding out the girl has a boyfriend
- Getting rejected harshly after a good run
- Getting AMOGGed
- Boyfriend shows up at the club
- She gets stolen by a friend
In any of these events, a master doesn’t have state crashes because he already expects the myriad of events that could happen out in the club. How you determine events in the club can affect your state.
In most cases, unless there was a fight where someone was really hurt, the events at any nightclub have no real repercussions so you should have have state crashes at the bar scene.
If and when a state crash occurs, recognize what happened and mentally and practically prepare for it next time. For example, communicate with an enemy or a former girlfriend about which days to goto a venue so you don’t run into them. Plan to go with friends so their presence is not as disturbing. Learn to tune things out that do not help your situation or increase your state.
Usage: State crashes happen in set, expect them, and plan ahead. You also get used to them over time.
