Why the long face?

In life, we all have our ups and our downs, but it's how we react and respond that sets us apart. Often when replaying an incident in my head I'm surprised at how negative I was. It's a mind-set and you can and need to change it!

If you're positive then people will respond to that and you'll find yourself surrounded by people who will stimulate you, you'll be able to feed off their energy and become a better person for it, not to mention you'll feel healthier and happier.

On the other hand you can choose to be negative and moan about everything and everyone, usually behind their backs. Maybe it's just me, but some people seem to get a perverse pleasure out of doing that, but they don't realise how it pushes people away from them. You just know that if you chat to them all you'll be subjected to is another moan session, and who wants that?

We get subjected to outside negativity like politics, famine etc. but you need to just change what you can, accept what you can't change and move on. Don't dwell on it or it'll eat you up from the inside out.
