Stop Being So Negative

Dear Bloggers,

You can learn a lot just by how people interact with you. You can discern if they are bitter people, upbeat people or extremely self-conscious. Believe it or not, this does not change when it comes to online writing / relationships. If every time you respond to others its in a way that is heavy, the spirit of negativity will emit from your pores faster than you can cover it up with a smiling emoji.

We all have experiences we’ve had to endure in this world and that we do endure and the abuse covers all angles. However, it is no reason to be lacking in compassion or rather consideration for the feelings of others. That said, stop being so negative in your interactions. By negative I do not mean standing firm on your opinions or just being open and honest. This isn’t about what you write on your blog; its your blog and I won’t tell you how to run your blog. I’m speaking more so along the lines of responding in general to those around you. We all have not so good days, but if every time I see your interactions you have this negative vibe then I’m just going to take you for a negative person. This, I might add, is a key destroyer of relationships. No one wants to be around people who are constantly complaining or speaking ill about everything let alone befriend them. Is there reason bitterness comes out of your mouth when you open it? Please, do not feed this to me. So I’m saying this not from a personal encounter or anything but just as a reminder that we should be more conscious of the things we say sometimes because energy invested comes back. You can at least be happy about waking up this morning.


Now, I’m off to the kitchen. Raisin Brand Crunch is calling my name…

      1. It is everything that we wanted. Our oldest daughter and granddaughters visited for a few days and we played Wii, danced and sang old rock songs! It was awesome! I am glad to be back! ❤

  1. I enjoyed reading this post; however, I’d really like to work on not responding to negativity whether in the blogging community or in our day-to-day interactions with folks. The amount of time I invest deflecting negativity is draining. Do you have any advice about that?

    1. Hi Candy, very nice to meet you and thanks for following my blog and leaving a comment on the table 🙂

      When it comes to responding to negativity it can be very draining indeed. My suggestion would be not to respond at all. Sometimes people project negative energy our way and we feel compelled to respond. However, it’s easier not too. Just chill and keep your peace. Positivity is always a choice. Choose it. Don’t let others dim your light. Like you said, it’s draining. Personally anyone draining that kind of energy from me doesn’t deserve my time.
