It is all about the perspective, isn’t it?
It is free will … YOUR free will to choose.
Someone may complain about the rain, but another may relish in it, see the rainbow and know the flowers are very glad for a drink.
It is hard to always see the positive in some things, especially when it is a difficult time or situation. It may even take years to recognize that there really was something good about this or that problem you had so many years ago. We often learn hard lessons from difficult people or times. But, good does come. Oftentimes, people remark they learned so much about themselves, they are stronger, they are wiser, etc.
What will you choose? Will you be negative or positive about a situation?
Do you make the best of it? Do you see the good in it all or only see the negative?
Here are some common terminology that is often used to describe negative and positive people.
What people say about a negative person:
- He is bringing us down
- Such a bummer/Such a downer
- He is so dark
- He sucked the fun right out of that
- So full of fear
What people say about a positive person:
- She is so bright
- How uplifting
- She lightens up the room
- So loving
- She has an air about her
It is interesting to note that the negative is low, dark and dense while the positive is described as light, high and airy. Is it that negative comes from fear and the positive comes from love? I think so.
It really is your perspective of something. I will say it again, you choose. You choose how to react to each an every person, place or situation.
It can become a habit to use only positive, loving words.
