Being negative has made me more positive

With the school year starting again, negativity tends to be flooding the halls. Not because the people are particularly negative, but because all the stress of school, work, sports and various other activities, seems to be building up. Thankfully, I have recently become accustomed to the positive lifestyle and I have ideas that might help you.

Our mood is typically affected by the environment we put ourselves in. If I were to start all of my mornings by running late, I am more than likely going to be remotely bitter for the rest of the day. Whereas, if I start my day by being timely, then I am more likely to have a positive attitude throughout the day.

The major thing that affects our environment is the people who we surround ourselves with. Some of us like to be around loud people, others of us prefer quiet friends. Some enjoy having crazy friends, others of us prefer the more calm type. No matter the kinds of friends you prefer, your main priority in friends should be having ones that have a positive outlook on life. If you have friends that are positive and lift you up, then you are succeeding. If you have friends that are not positive and don’t lift you up, then you are not succeeding as well. If your friends are negative, you have the glorious opportunity to be the positive one.

Being the positive one can be a bit draining, but is extremely rewarding. You will get to see your friends’ everyday lives transform into more positive experiences. I am fortunate to have been able to be the one receiving the positivity as well as providing it. Both of those opportunities were amazing, and I am grateful to have been able to be a part of them. I hope you, too, get to experience both sides of the spectrum.
