Positive or Negative?

Would you say you are a positive person? Or do you tend to focus on the negative things in life?

I’m sure you’d agree with me that it is easier to be in the company of someone who is positive and upbeat than to be in the company of someone who has nothing positive to say. It’s depressing and soul destroying to constantly be bombarded with negative comments/actions.

So what should we do if we’re surrounded by negative people?

I haven’t any definitive answers…but I do have a few suggestions – some you may find useful, others you may find are not right in your situation:

  • Smile
  • Don’t argue with the “negative person”, it will only encourage them!
  • Counteract their negatives with a positive statements
  • Distance yourself from the negative people in your life
  • Let the negatives wash over you…don’t let them soak into you and pull you down

Be positive, it’s contagious!
