Sometimes people use words and forget that the words have impact on the feelings of others. We are all human. But as humans we all have a tendency to focus on the negative.
You have had a good day at work, met your targets, maybe you’ve even had a pay rise, but as you walk along the road you get splashed as you pass a puddle. It ruins your day, that’s what you remember. You have forgotten about your other achievements for the say. If someone ask, how was your day, you tell them about getting splashed. Don’t be a tabloid junkie like the press and pick on only the negative. Yes, there is a natural tendency for the brains to remember the negative, as in prehistoric times it kept us safe and helped us to avoid danger. But it also keeps us in fear. It is more difficult to focus on the positive but when we do it can lift our mood, and improve our health and happiness.
How often do we depress ourselves with all the things that are wrong and forget all the things that were right? Try for a day to only entertain positivity in what you do; only read positive news, talk only to positive people – and see how that feels.
Think about yourself and accentuate the positive.
“Yeah, Wacko Jacko, where did that come from? Some English tabloid. I have a heart and I have feelings. I feel that when you do that to me. It’s not nice.”
“People write negatives things, cause they feel that’s what sells. Good news to them, doesn’t sell.”
