Being positive as we deal with the negative

Positive bunny


Being positive as we deal with the negative issue or situation capturing our attention right now, though perhaps not actually being a happy bunny, is an option worth considering. After all, being negative would only at best suggest the difficulty has control over our outlook. And this is surely not so.

Being positive as we deal with the negative is possibly as much a habit or a way of being as a strategy. In a sense, it is not something to turn on and off at a whim. Being constant in our approach towards life makes it easier for those around us to well, basically, be around us.

Being positive as we deal with the negative also has the potential to open up opportunities previously hidden behind the dark clouds of the moment. Believing each challenge has a solution bolsters our enthusiasm for life, even whilst we grapple with this or that setback.

Being positive as we deal with the negative, in conclusion then, can act as a catalyst for all we do regardless of the eventual results obtained. As a component of our best self, it is we might say, a reflection of who we are.

    Trying to remain positive in the midst of negative circumstances, I feel, is so important. For me, it’s about ‘reframing’ your view on the situation. If we can remain positive this can lead to more positive feelings and actions 🙂

      Hi Jo,

      Many thanks for sharing here. Yes, reframing can certainly help us see things from a different, perhaps more empowering, perspective.

      Best wishes to you and thanks again for connecting here.

      Brian 🙂
