How to stay positive in a negative world

Posted on 0 3 m read 95 views

Staying positive in a world where bad things are happening all around us. If you just watch the news, that alone can send you on a downward spiral of negativity. Maybe it’s at work where your colleges are gossiping constantly or a group of friends you have, always have something bad to say.

Life can be hard sometimes and when negativity screams at you from every corner it is pretty tough to get back up on the positivity wheel. I would love to share with you ways I have learnt to stay positive in hard times.

1: Surround yourself with Positive people

Now I know it is inevitable that we will come across negative people in our life, we might even be friends with them so knowing how to deal with that is quite important if you don’t want to adopt the same point of view or perspective in life. Firstly negative people are not bad people they just see things differently. That is why I would say that it is important to surround yourself with friends that see the bright side of life, people that choose to see the best in others ( not naive people, positive people ) that way when you are speaking to somebody with a negative mindset it will be easy for your response back to be one of a positive nature instead of fueling the fire and agreeing. When you surround yourself with something you will start to become like your environment. Trust me I have been there  and now that I have overcome the negativity I can say confidently that it is a much more peaceful place to be.

Being positive is a choice.

2: Speak it out

There are power in your words. What you say not only affects you but others around you. I know that when I am faced with a negative thought, if I counteract that thought with the exact opposite words suddenly my negative thought doesn’t have power anymore. eg: MY THOUGHT: ” i’m not good enough ” I CHOOSE TO SPEAK OUT

I CHOOSE TO SPEAK OUT  ” I am more than equipped for the task ahead “

Suddenly the negative thought does not have a hold on you anymore.

Speaking positive brings you freedom.

3: Ask yourself; Do I want to change?

beating the battle of negativity comes down to the question of whether you want to change or not. If you are not ready to try the things I have suggested then its possible that it might be harder to change ( not impossible just harder )

Give it a try, I promise you it will be a positive experience.
