There are always going to be those people we can do without in our life. Better yet, letís call it like it is, the battle of positive vs. negative. There are always negative people in everyoneís life. The trick is to not let them into your mind. Life will get us down every now and then. We donít need to let others do it for us.
No one can control someone elseís mind without their permission. Sometimes it can seem like people have that power over others, but the person can break it over time. Every person should try their best to avoid negative people. A negative person is like poison. They work their way into your system and kill your happiness with their toxin. I know people who will judge others based on the books that they read, but that doesnít accurately depict a personís character. I personally think negative people are miserable and want you to join them.
Donít join them! Life is hard enough without going around being negative all day long. Being negative takes a lot of energy out of a person, energy that could be used in a more productive way. On the other side of the coin, we must remain positive in order to be successful in our life and how we relate to others and our families. I was reading a book called Power Thoughts by Joyce Meyer. In the book it said positive people can live up to four years longer on average. Instead of thinking about all the bad things in our lives, we should be thinking about the good things in our lives. We need to try to be around positive people a lot more than negative people. The more positive we are, the better things will go for us. Being more positive can take time, but like with everything else, practice makes perfect.
Try it once. It might change your life forever.
