Be careful not to put another person down just to make you look good; when you’re talking with other people or in a group, resist the temptation to interject your negative opinion; compulsive complaining is another destroyer of friendships and relationships so don’t go there, it’s not worth it.
One day at a time try to avoid negativity and complaining about whatever, it doesn’t matter; if you can’t say something nice; don’t say anything at all, just shut up!
Try to comfort someone who is having a difficult time, open the door for someone, offer a smile as often as you can to whoever, whenever; strike up a conversation with the store clerk or someone standing in line or wherever; keep eye contact and smile and remember to keep it positive.
Just keep at it one day at a time and if something negative comes your way just let it roll off your shoulder, flick those negative thoughts like an insect on your arm; don’t let your mind get you all worked up, it’s not worth it!
All these negative words and thoughts are affecting your well being, not anyone else’s; it makes you look bad not anyone else, so cut it out minute by minute, day by day.
Have faith in God, ask for His help; it’s as simple as asking; ask and you shall receive.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
From The Secret Daily Teachings:
Our natural state of being is joy, and it takes so much energy to think negative thoughts, to speak negative words, and to feel miserable. The easy path is good thoughts, good words, and good deeds.
