Being Positive In A Negative Environment
Are you aware of how you react to negative comments from others? The world is filled with negativity. It seems like we can’t help but lash out when others come at us with their attitudes. Have you gotten to the point where you just want to leave your family, friends and environment and make a dramatic change in your life? If so, then you are at a great place. You are self aware! You see that your life can be better and you want that!
Your Negative Neighbors
Do you become angry when you get negative criticism? Criticism is a low form of assistance others feel needs to be said. Realizing that negative people are all around us, we want to stop them from questioning our decisions. We become angry to protect ourselves from further attack. We have been given this protective mechanism from birth. Early on in life, we use this continually. By the time we are adults, a fully evolved personality we have mastered “anger” and found other forms of response that cause less anxiety to everyone concerned. But have you?
Your Own Negative Mindset
Do you shrink back when someone is negative towards you? Some of us decide to ignore others and this works for a while. But then an eruption occurs and often divorce is in the picture. Or possibly harm is done to another because ignoring a person’s criticism is not a long term solution.
Self Awareness And The Negative Life
We can become aware that a long term solution is needed. When we do, doors of possibility seem to open up. We find a book that explains things. We hear a speaker that seems to talk directly to us. Being aware that we deserve a happy life, we seek for solutions. Self awareness is a gift we’re given and we ought to respect that gift!
The Gift To Overcome Negative Criticism
Living as a self aware person, we begin to grow in a way that trees do: big, strong,powerful, giving shade to others, and fruit to many. This is the value we are all born with. Until we become self aware, we will use anger and shrinking back as mechanisms of protection. But our true nature is to grow prosperous and live productive lives.
