I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery for a long time now. So many things have come to light for me, but the one thing that stands out now more than ever is the negativity that surrounds us every day. I see it on social media and interactions at stores, I even see it in my own home.
It is hard to be a positive person and spread that when you are surrounded by more negativity than positivity. I won’t lie and say that every day is always positive for me, but I am working on finding positive experiences even on a negative day for me.
This is something that’s stuck out for me for quite some time now, but I’ve been rolling it around in my head to try to write this the best way possible. Just the other day I was cruising through my Facebook news feed. Now, most people complain because they see the political things and all of that. I, however, have managed to clean abused animals, political things and such off my newsfeed over the past years.
That isn’t the type of negativity that I’m talking about. It is more a general negativity. There are posts such as ‘Post down below things you hate that people say’. Really? I won’t lie and say there aren’t things that really irritate me that I’ve heard. Mostly, I try to shake my head and move on past that. Especially lately where negativity stands out so much to me in my environments rather online or off.
Even in my own home, negativity reigns supreme. So much of the words that come out of our mouths are saturated in negative connotations or are meant to be judgmental and cruel. I’ve gotten to the point that it actually gives me an eye twitch to hear it.
While I am on a path to cleanse myself emotionally, spiritually and my deeper self it is hard to be around so much negativity. I also know that it is my journey and not everyone else’s’ journey. That they might not share my opinion on things and have no problem continuing their prior behaviors.
My life will come down to a matter of what I’m willing to accept into my life and what I’m not. As my journey remains a constant one, I’m sure things will change and grow along the way. I know I have made leaps and bounds dealing with my anxiety and depression. Now, I’m working on discovering my true self and passion.
That is where my life is at currently. I’ll leave you with one question…if you knew your life was passing quickly and your time was limited, what is one thing that you would do?
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live life, Own life, Love life)
