Finding my Voice

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Boy is that hard to do sometimes. It is hard not to get caught up in the mean and negative gossip. I have a couple of very dear friends that are very negative. It makes being around them very difficult. I also use to eat lunch with some very negative people - I had to stop so I would not get caught up in it. Now I work out or just sit quietly at my desk. Still it is something I must work on everyday to say positive things and to spread the spark!! PS - Thanks for all the Birthday wishes yesterday.

    Well I've been told it's better not go with negative people and at first I thought how come if they are my friends?! However I believe it's true. We can't change people but we can try to be very positive around them. It it doesn't work you try to stay less with them. I think you can use it as a challenge to yourself. Be as positive as you can be when you're around them, it's gonna be good for you and maybe you can make them understand. emoticon

    I have found that constantly mentioning the other persons point of view to a negative person kind of makes that negative person drift away... Just try to remember that they are probably suffering from a lack of self love... One friend who was determined to remain my friend has stopped being so negative. Not sure if it is only around me or if she has really started to see a different perspective. I do know that we can't change other people, only choose who we are going to be around. Perhaps you should try to enlarge your circle of friends and find someone who is more positive! They are out there, put out positive vibes! Good luck!
