I can’t control other people’s actions or decisions but I can control how I am and how I choose to react to others. Things have been a bit hectic for me lately and negativity has barged it’s ugly head into my life. I’ve had to really think about how I want to handle things and how to maintain the positivity and happiness that I once had. It sounds easy, but I find it often takes a lot of strength and determination to simply walk away from negativity.
I’m not a pessimistic person. In fact, on the optimism spectrum, I would say I fall in the realistic/optimistic range. Despite the circumstances, I know I’m lucky to have such great friends that have been there for me and remind me that I deserve to be happy and yes, I CAN walk away from negative people and situations. I just have to choose a path and stick to it.
