When i saw this thread it reminded me of this one time when i was in high school and i was walking home with a girl from my school. We were talking and all of the sudden, a block before i was going to turn off, she said to me: “you know, you have a very negative outlook. Its not a great trait to have”! Whoa! I immediately got insulted and for teh rest of the block that we were together, i was silent and just absorbing what she said. When i turned off the block, i said good bye and contemplated what she said. After the initial self pity wore off, I realized she was right. From that moment on, I work on trying to be more positive. Its hard, Complaining is “in style” and brings more attention, but being positive is so rewarding! Its so much more pleasant to be near positive people!
Try it! Its hard but great!
