-Don’t take your thoughts too seriously.
Don’t believe everything you think, one of the most powerful lessons I have learned from life.Take a closer look at the negative people that are present in your life.
What is it about them that triggers you?
What is it about them that affects you so badly?
Are the things they are doing really that bad or is it your mind playing tricks on you?
The mind is constantly looking for trouble and once you focus on the negative traits of one person, it will be quite challenging to see their positive traits, but that doesn’t mean the positive traits don’t exist.
-Let go of “what ifs” and “should haves”
It’s really easy to beat yourself up about that bad decision or that wrong turn in life. We all have regrets about paths we took or opportunities we missed. But remember – hindsight is 20/20. We make decisions based on circumstances and information available at the time. We know more now and our thoughts have evolved since then.
So realize that it truly wasn’t your fault and give yourself a break. It’s absolutely impossible to walk through life without a single misstep. Take it as a learning experience and make a note to yourself about what to watch out for the next time you’re faced with something similar.
-Don’t make their problems your problems.
For your own sake and theirs, make sure you don’t make their problems your problems and make sure you don’t make their negativity your own.
If you want to shed light into the dark, you focus on the solutions not on the problems.
-Be the change you want to see in your world.
Trust me when I tell you that this world is nothing more than a reflection of who we are deep down inside.
Seek to feel good. Live life in a positive, cheerful, loving and happy way and trust that by doing so, all the negative people that are present in your life will be affected by your feel good energy.
You can’t change others, you can only change yourself and by doing so you will change the whole world. Dwell upon this idea until it makes sense to you and start working on changing the world by changing yourself
When I am happy, the whole world seems to be happy, when I am sad, sadness is all I see.
Trust that those who are meant to stay in your life will stay and learn from you and you will learn from them as long as they are still there. And those who are meant to leave, will leave.
Learn to go with the flow. Resist nothing.
Let go of your need to complain.
Make sure you take responsibility for your own emotions and state of being.
Please, don’t go around complaining about how much their negativity is affecting you for this will only create more negativity.
Assume responsibility for your own thoughts and feelings and see what YOU can do to feel better, what YOU can do to change the current situation by changing your lenses, by changing your attitude and the way you look at things.
