Happy International Labor Day!
Just have one day off because of International Labor day, so that I decided to write how to ‘deal’ with negativity or just get rid /avoid being irritated by negativity. I hope this post will help those who read it. Well then, let’s start!
When it comes to talk about negativity, I think all of us are experienced it, we have gone through the process in which we could feel very uncomfortable for whole day just because little thing we dislike or stuck with people who ‘radiating’ negativity and giving such tense atmosphere, etc. Some may say that negativity is part of life which I find so scary, either online or offline, everyone seems easy to get upset with everything these days.
For me, life is tough enough and I don’t want to add any struggles to make it tougher by adding more negativity in my life. There still many things to do instead to get myself stuck for something destructive alike negativity.
Negativity perpetuates itself, breeds dissatisfaction and clutters the mind. And when the mind is cluttered with negativity, happiness is much harder to come by.
Change The Way You Think
Your mindset is the most important because no one can really ‘dictate’ how your brain should think as well you can’t control people’s mouth, the way people’s thought but you can choose on how the way you think, react, decide. It is not easy to stay positive when we are surrounded by negative atmosphere on contrast it is not always easy to find happiness, but it is always possible to deal of it. Regardless of the situation you face, your attitude is your choice and your choice is determined what you want to be either be positive or stay negative.
Don’t Seek Your Own Trouble
This is one from many things that I have learned from either online or offline, never come to seek your own trouble by getting near to the problem itself. Technology is getting advance, the user of social medias are increasing rapidly from time to time, no wonder it is such easy to spot feuds and gossipy forums in online world. Cyber bullying could be as scary as bullying that happen in real life.
The most challenging is gossip that happened in work environment or school environment or where the place is. Sometimes it really not easy to stay out from this kind of conversation moreover if you have bunches of gossipers colleague / classmates/ acquaintances. As for me, I like to busy myself so that I can make excuse not to join them gossip others. Luckily I am slightest type of ‘ignorant’ person so that I won’t busy myself to check everywhere about what people think about myself because I just don’t want to waste time and drain myself emotionally. When it comes to online, I choose to read positive comments and also constructive critics which will make myself be better person. Offline – – – Don’t join other who gossiping other people, don’t start any conversation which later going to arouse negativity and conflict.
Spread Love Be Kind And Considerate
Practice and acts of kindness. Believe or not our attitude also contributing to the society and environment. If we act kindly and be considerate as an individual, perhaps world won’t change drastically, negativity won’t disappear suddenly but at least you can be a part of positive vibe instead of fighting negativity with negativity which perhaps cause more suffering not for other but yourself.
I know it is no easy to remain positive furthermore if you are keep being pushed to corner by the negativity. That’s why remember whenever you face negativity, slow down your pace, don’t react in hurry, think of it carefully. Don’t do or decide things which at the end you will regret it.
Also remember even when a situation seems personal – even if someone insults you directly – it oftentimes has nothing to do with you. Remember, what others say and do, and the opinions they have, are based entirely on their own self-reflection (marcandangel).
An entire body of water the size of the Pacific Ocean can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, all the negativity in the world can’t bring you down unless you allow it to get inside your head. People who are able to discern the positive points in negative situations are the ones who prosper in the long run. (marcandangel)
