This may or may not be a little bit of a “vent sesh,” but hear me out…this is something I feel my readers should know about me and also know for themselves. I am NOT a negative person, I try to look on the bright side of everything and I truly try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. However, with a passion, I can not stand the continuous moaning and complaining. Please cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it already! You are not the only one having a hard day! You are not the only one who has bad things happen to them and you most certainly are not the center of the universe SO STOP ASKING EVERYONE FOR ATTENTION.
Let’s backtrack for a second, when I speak of these “constant complainers,” these are the Debby Downers and Negative Nancys in life. The ones who are annoyed that it’s too cold and wishes it was hot, but now it’s hot and they wish it was cold. The ones who take a sip of coffee from -who cares where you get coffee- and it’s not how you asked them to make it. Everything is always wrong, nothing ever goes right, and there is no way in the world you can possibly please these people.
If you are dealing with a Debby or Nancy, here are some things you may need to know…
Let’s all just listen to Elsa and LET IT GO (no, I do not have children and yes I have watched Frozen…a lot. She sings my theme song!) When in doubt, let it go in one ear and out the other. Do NOT let someone being so negative all the time get you down. You are better than the low that they stoop to.
Slowly distance yourself away from these individuals and start to surround yourself with people who keep your spirits high and soaring. You want to always have people who are going to lift you up and push you to be the best person you can be.
Being in a “friendship” that is mentally, emotionally, and even physically taking a toll on yourself is not healthy. When it comes to your body, you know what you can handle and it is not okay for someone to walk on top of your health. Take time to yourself and get into a better mind set, overall you will be a better friend for it as well.
This may not be the easiest but I feel it’s necessary to let your friend know that they may need to try changing their point of view. Let them know, you know things may be hard for them, but when you think positive and when you put your mind in a positive setting, good things will happen! If they don’t want to change, then you tried and reread options 1-3 over and repeat as necessary, because it is healthier for you to be positive!
Positivity is a chain reaction. When I laugh, I want to make others laugh. When I smile, I want others to smile with me. So, do the world a favor…make someone’s day; give them a smile, tell them a joke, or even pass it forward and pay for someones coffee! Another one of my favorites is seeing a penny on the ground…BUT it’s NOT on heads…not great for me because heads is good luck…SO INSTEAD, I turn the penny over and let someone else find the heads up penny to make their day and wish them good luck!
To all the Debby Downers and Negative Nancys in the world, things will get better as long as your mind frame is able to see the good! Someone other than yourself is probably having a much worse day! So, put on your big girl/boy panties, EMBRACE THE SUCK and move on!
To anyone having a bad day, I wish you a better one and just remember this…
Positive thinking is not about expecting the best out of every situation, but instead accepting whatever happens, is the best for that moment. 🙂
I LOVE DOING LIFE WITH YOU
Dear Mother Nature, As a former New Yorker, I definitely felt for everyone in that…
Way too much information will be happening in this post so, I am apologizing now…
