Do you know any truly negative people? People who cannot say anything positive about anything. They are miserable and not at all fun to be around.
Yes, sure misery loves company but seriously who likes to be around miserable people? I’m not talking about the occasional bad day that puts us in a bad mood. Or getting up on the wrong side of the bed once in a while. I’m talking about people who are completely and totally wallowing in their own problems and the negative going on in the world to the point they can see nothing else. That’s all they talk about.
You say something positive and they come back with something that lets you know their glass isn’t only empty it is cracked and dirty too. UCK!
Misery loves company but how can we create a positive life if we’re constantly focused on negative or we’re hanging around with completely negative people. Sure we can still love them but no we don’t have to join them in their misery. People like superheroes, not victims.
Yes indeed life is going to suck at times. There are going to be challenges, frustration, injustices, and disappointment. But we don’t change negative by dwelling on the negative. To create our best life we work hard to stay positive, even when life sucks because a positive attitude always makes the hard in life easier.
