Do you ever feel like you are just constantly negative, even when you don’t try to be?
Someone – a friend – talks about or says something and instead of encouragement or a positive thought, your first instinct is to say something negative.
Do you ever justify your words or actions as being a “realist”?
In today’s world, negativity has overpowered people. They think it’s “natural” or that they are just trying to “be real” with their friends.
And while your words might seem like second nature, just flowing from your mouth, they aren’t. They are controllable and it’s a choice to exude negative vibes into the universe, and especially to people you know and love.
Realist is a nicer word for pessimist, in my oh-so-humble opinion. Think about it – whenever someone says something and they back it up with “I’m just being a realist,” most likely, the comment they just said was negative. Or at least not encouraging or positive towards the other person’s thoughts.
Personally, as a genuinely happy and outgoing person, I truly dislike when people come out of nowhere with negative thoughts/comments towards MY thoughts.
I am pretty sure I have said this a few time in previous posts – I have HUGE DREAMS. If I sat here and tried to list them all or even vaguely explained what I want out of life, everyone would think I am crazy. I am a dreamer. A wanderer. I want to experience life.
That is why I choose to only talk about the *less* crazy things … doesn’t mean that they aren’t crazy to someone else. But I don’t need negative backlash towards my dreams or goals.
Even the simple question, “Well, how are you going to do that?” might not SEEM negative, but you’re questioning my abilities to get shit done. And I ALWAYS get shit done. Let ME figure it out, and if you can’t muster out a positive thought, just nod your head and don’t say anything … is it really that hard?
In this world where negativity powers just about any thought someone has, how are we able to actually take in the good that is happening?
Have you actually stopped to think about positive things in your life? Or the world in general?
There is no doubt in my mind that the world is going to hell. But what about the happiness that happens as well? Is that worth being disregarded?
“Be the change you want to see in the world”
The way I see it, it’s a choice to either be a negative energy or a positive one. And it’s also a choice to determine who you want to surround yourself with.
I can’t remember the last time that I willingly chose to be around someone who gave me a negative vibe.
Oh, that’s right … NEVER. Who actually WANTS to deal with that? I make it a priority to always think and say positive affirmations every day. And in turn, I am surrounded by positive people for the most part.
I say “for the most part” because negative people always tend to weed their way through somehow. It’s like a disease that is trying to take out everyone. I won’t allow it to get to me or hold me back.
You are drawn to the type of energy you exert.
So ask yourself: Are you surrounded by negative or positive influences? If you are leaning more towards negative, instead of blaming it on the people in your life, trying taking into account your own actions and energy. YOU might be the one attracting that negativity in your life, and if you want it to end, you need to change how you view things in the world.
And if you believe there is no positivity left in the world … well, you know your fate.
“And that’s the way it is!”
