Raise your hand if you know someone who’s ALWAYS negative!!!
I feel like we ALL have that one person.
You know the person that just can never see the positive? Or someone who always spins something fun into something…MEH? Oh my God. Do you know what I mean though? Is this rude of me to call this out? I can’t deal with the negativity. Like, listen! STOP. The negative energy is just suffocating really.
Unfortunately there’s a tremendous amount of people who are well, negative.
So yes, it’s a topic that needs to be discussed, you know?
This post comes at an ideal time because the latest episode of TSC Podcast is LIVE & the theme is just very clear throughout: positivity is obviously incredibly more powerful than negativity.
To begin, negativity in any situation is horrid. That’s what it is. Listen, if you’re constantly spewing it, eventually it’s going to end up all over you. Plus it really does NO good. Like, think about it though. What good does negativity do? So, yea – negative vibes, that’s one thing I think needs to just be unacceptable.
I get it though. Sometimes you just feel shitty & need to get it out BUT if you’re trying to live a positive life, project positive energy…OVERALL.
The worst thing on earth is when someone comes to YOU with a negative situation & you join in on the conversation in a cynical way.
This past year I’ve really watched myself.
Instead of being a part of the problem, I fire back with positives.
Basically think of it as a battery. Someone throws you a negative, fire back with a positive. What happens when they mix? Neutral.
Accept that there are good days…& there are bad days. And on bad days you need positive, uplifting people surrounding you. Not people who are making your situation worse.
My advice for anyone who’s struggling with this topic: take a PEOPLE INVENTORY. Seriously, I did last year & wrote down a list of people who added life to my life. Anyone that sucked me like a Dementor’s Kiss from Harry Potter was put on the back burner. And I’m not sorry about it. At all, in fact.
( A Dementor’s Kiss, by the way, is the act of a Dementor sucking out a person’s soul. It was sometimes used as a sentence for criminals by the Ministry of Magic, and is considered a fate worse than death… ).
Point: whenever you’re feeling negative, try to be positive because ultimately, it doesn’t just hurt other people…IT HURTS YOU.
On that note: KEEP moving forward, stay in your own ( positive ) lane, & screw negativity. Really, it does nothing.
Guys, we’re getting so deep today!
Ok, ok – who’s listened to EPISODE 13? Thoughts?
