Everyone have something which others do not have. Something that is uniquely you. We are all different from one another, our experiences, our encounters, our thought patterns are all different and unique. And all this combine form us individually.
We choose who we want to share our experiences and encounters with. Whether the result after that sharing is positive or negative, it is still something we can learn from it. Sometimes, some people are just better as acquaintances and not close friends whom you can reveal more deeper things with.
Sometimes, some are just normally negative, they bring it upon themselves to share with you what they know about a certain topic, but they bring to you all the negative stuff so they can prepare you for the worst experiences and if you do not get the worst scenario, then they feel that you would be happier.
I find most people are generally negative, we tend to focus on the worst that can happen and many a time, those situation doesn’t really happen. And sometimes, when we focus so much on the negativity, we tend to miss out on the positivity of the situation.
In most situations, even it is the worst situation, there may be something good about the situation…. It may be just a tiny glimpse of goodness, but that is something good about it as well. Sometimes we need to look at the situation from another perspective to see the goodness. Sometimes we have to look at in a way we have never thought before to realize the positive in the situation.
And, we all go through valleys in life, but we do not stay down in the valleys forever. As we continue holding on the goodness of a situation, we will be able to go through the valley, we will be able to see the end of the situation we are in, it may not be easy, it may be very tough, you may need to make some tough decisions about it but all situations will pass, it is not permanent.
We may not know what is going to happen in the future, but if we just focus on the negativity of the situation in the past, we will not be able to go forward and accept the tiny glimpse of goodness that may happen if we are willing to open our hearts to it.
