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.
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
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!
