I choose to not respond when someone is complaining to me, egging me on to join them in their misery. I think it's an unconsious thing that people do, but the saying is true... misery loves company. I CHOOSE NOT TO BE NEGATIVE. Find the good in your day and hug it close!!
If you can't find anything good... it's time to move on.
I find that by helping others and sharing in their successes, it helps me too. I encourage people by being positive. As the saying goes "misery loves company", but I'm a firm believer that it works the other way around, tenfold!
361 Whenever motivation is low or whenever you get in a rut...Having someone to go through the "pain" and the process with you makes getting up for the task at hand that much easier and enjoyable. I have yet to see the buddy system fail.
If you have had problems with motivation or sticking to a plan, I advise you to find a committed buddy before you start out on your journey again. The world says "Misery Loves Company" But I say "True Success Loves Company" 220
