In the spirit of wanting to live our best lives, we have to understand that there’s power in the words we speak, think and type online. You see examples of it every day in the comments section of social media. I guess some people didn’t learn the golden rule, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.” You do know that you can keep scrolling if you don’t like something you see right?
Aside from social media, what about those people who seem to live to complain? Every day their conversations are filled with something new and negative they have to say. You may have a co-worker, a friend or family member who’s like this and their excessive negativity feels like it can drain the life out of you. Negative people will have a problem for every solution and misery loves company.
In life, we all experience rough patches and emotional outbursts, but you need to be able to know the difference between having a bad moment and having a bad day. There’s nothing wrong with expressing yourself, but it’s important to train your minds to think positively even in negative situations.
The truth is, a lot of people are just poor communicators and have toxic habits that allow them to believe that being negative is ok. The bottom line is everything doesn’t deserve your attention, and no one wants to get sucked into your bad energy.
