I try to put a positive look at life on each of my posts. The most important thing I believe is that we all must look at life with a positive attitude.
I know that it is not always easy to have a positive attitude if you come from a life that you were never given assurance or love. So what do we do in such circumstances where love was not part of the equation? I believe we need to realize that people in our past whether family or so called friends did not get it right. In other words they were not telling us the truth. If you are still struggling with negative thoughts and you are still around those people that do not give you positive thoughts or encouragement leave them behind and find those who do.
If you have already moved to the right side of the track; other words you have friends that give you positive encouragement however the thoughts still come once in a while it is OK. I still go through this myself now and again with negative thoughts. I realize the problem is that I am thinking too much about myself than about other people. It is important to think about other people above ourselves. Again I have to say it is not an easy thing to get past however we do need to do so.
If you find yourself around people that continue to give you negative thoughts it is time to let them go. You don’t need to get rid of them totally out of your life however spend less time around them. For all of us need friends even those who act negative or don’t deserve friends. The important thing is to be with them when you are in a good place. In fact my idea would have them join up with your friends that give you the positive encouragement. These friends would be able to rub off on them.
In all of this is to realize that we are in a battle over our mind and we must decide that we are going to have victory. When the negative thoughts come we recognize them and we start the battle knowing we will have victory over them. Begin by telling the positive things in your life. Do it over and over again than those thoughts will be less frequent. You see we have had these thoughts for years so it will take time to have the new positive thoughts.
One last thing to remember is that you are not alone in this fight. Actually most of us are in this fight however we try to cover them up primarily by joking or putting on a fake smile. If you have overcome this in your life find others that need the same positive encourage. Until next time happy and positive thoughts.
