I feel like being positive all the time is a challenge. No one is perfect. When something negative happens, we tend to think negative. Blame ourselves or others. It happens, but it doesn’t have to keep happening. You can change, it just takes some time! Practice makes perfect right? Trust me, it will change your life in so many ways.
IT DECREASES NEGATIVE SELF-TALK
Everyone has those times where you doubt yourself, feel self conscious, bring yourself down. It’s a normal thing. Warning: I’m about to share something really personal. A couple of years ago, I resorted to self harm. It made the pain go away. Made me feel more in control of my excessive crying. But, that didn’t solve anything. Just left scars on my body. It took time but I realized that I am a great person, a great daughter who gets good grades, and a great friend who cares so much. I stopped cutting and I starting thinking more positively. Pushed the negative out and brought the positive forward.
IT CAN TURN A BAD DAY AROUND
Once you get the hang of it, life will get better. Those skills are important for just about any day. Like when you’re having a bad hair day or when your friend is mad at you. Having a bad day will be easier to deal with when you have the skills to pull those positive thoughts forward. As you may know, my favorite quote is “It’s not a bad life, it’s just a bad day” so just breath for a moment and relax. Nothing is permanent and those feelings of anger, frustration, and stress will disappear soon!
IT IS CONTAGIOUS
Honestly, no one likes to be around someone gloomy and sad. Everyone likes the person that’s cheerful and happy. I believe that the more you’re around someone who’s positive, the more positive you’ll be. I used to hang out with people who were super nice to everyone. It made me a better person and made me more reasonably. Before, if someone snapped at me, I’d snap back. Now, I take a moment to think why that person would’ve snapped. Are they having a bad day? Did something bad happen to them? Who knows! But that’s the point. I don’t know so I should jump to conclusions. Anyways, my point here is that being around positive people will help you in the long run!
Thanks for reading everyone! I hope you all have been practicing on being more positive and sharing the love. Yeah that sounded a little weird but oh well!
