Yo...you ever been around a person that always has a list of about 10 things that aren't going right in their life whenever you ask them how their day is going? Or how about those people that always act like the world is ending? Unfortunately, it's pretty common, at least among some of the people that I'm forced to interact with. Thank God I wasn't born a pessimist, He knew exactly what he was doing. Pessimism mixed with my natural sarcasm would equal absolute disaster for me in the social world.
I'm one of those people that strongly believes in all types of forces and energy, and I feel like energy that is already out there can be transformed. Now, for the most part, I'd say that I consider myself extremely easy-going, even-tempered, and generally happy, and I think that most people that know me personally would agree. Even when I'm NOT happy I don't take my anger and frustration out on those close to me or the people I work with. So with that being said, if you're one of those people that always, always, ALWAYS has something negative going on and NEVER have anything good to say if I go out of my way to ask you how your day is going, stay the FUCK from around me. Negative thoughts and actions breed negative energy which in turn not only brings YOU down but potentially everyone around you.
Also, don't continue to complain about the same situation over and over again especially if you aren't actively doing anything in your power to try and change it. I was always taught that if you didn't like something, don't complain, change it. It's actually a really good principle to live by and once you start living by it you'll find that most of the stuff that you complain about is self-inflicted and can be changed. Think about your situations from a more optimistic perspective and they're bound have a light at the end of the tunnel at some point, though I must admit, the shit doesn't happen overnight. For example, I think certain people who want to be in a better space financially are NOT mainly because they complain too much about NOT being in the financial space that they want to be in without any further action. So, the complaint is, "I'm always broke...I never have any money to do what I want, I'm always in a financial bind, etc." So my question is, why do you seldom hear people approach the same issue from an angle such as, "Hmmm...I know I'm struggling financially right now, so what can I do to try and start fixing it? Am I paying to much for something? Am I living beyond my means? What can I do to cut costs? I wonder if there are any part time jobs hiring...I wonder if I can add value to the job I'm at and impress my boss so that I can get a raise..." Yeah...how many times do you ever hear THAT approach? Don't worry...I'll wait...
Listen, nobody's situation is perfect. But I think what separates people from being positive or negative about life's situations is maturity. Honestly, what's funny to me about this whole thing is that the people that are the most negative that carry the dark cloud over them all the time probably don't even realize how negative they're being. It would just help out a lot if people were more conscious of the energy that they were putting out there because I also think that you reap what you sow. Oh, and one last thing, besides a death in the family or an accident or something like that, I think that your personal life and your work life should ALWAYS remain separate. ALWAYS. In other words, keep your fuckin' feelings in check. I'm am not the person that you should randomly snap on or have an attitude with just because you're dealing with some dumb shit that your "significant other" has done to you. That's a top 5 easy way for me to switch to "Taurus Temper Mode" which isn't EVER good for anyone. Welp! That's about all I could think of for this particular topic...it was just something I randomly observed recently and figured I'd write about it from my perspective. Until next blog...I'm out!
