Group VI – Despondency or Despair
Willow is the remedy for people who are so fixated on their own unhappy lives, that they remain stuck in their unhappiness. They become angry internally that they are treated badly by life and ask what they have done wrong.
You need Willow when you have too much self-pity, you are moping or are cranky, and when you have trouble seeing the positive side when something is going wrong. You have a hard time forgiving and forgetting. You need willow if, whenever you experience misfortune, you react touchily and think that no one cares what happens to you or how you feel. You internalise the emotion. You blame others for the fact that you’re unhappy.
Bach flower Willow can help you to view and deal with life more optimistically and positively. You accept the circumstances and take responsibility for your own situation.
For people who have a hard time accepting a setback or being unlucky without complaining. They judge life for the success it brings. These people have the feeling they don’t deserve this misfortune, that it is unjust. Because of this, they are bitter. More often than not, they don’t take an interest in things they used to enjoy.
