Maybe we can’t do all we would like to do in terms of building our desired life. Even so, there is one thing within our power to accomplish. We can take the positive step of moving away from negative people.
Of course, there will be people who, for whatever reasons, we are unable to exclude from our life. In these instances, the positive step of moving away from negative people might involve creating a mental space between ourselves and them.
We needn’t digest all their negativity. Learning to hear something without allowing it to influence our mindset is a skill worth acquiring. Letting go of gloom or, better yet, not picking it up in the first place, is our responsibility. And how we choose to engage with people says much about our outlook of the world.
Needless to say, we can extend the positive step of moving away from negative people to include news reports and the like.
