Without judging, we always have the option of dismissing the negativity from around us. Dealing with life’s challenges is certainly tough enough as it is without having to wade through the waters of negativity.
The action of dismissing the negativity from around us could involve this series of simple steps:
1) Clarify our definitions of positivity and negativity;
2) Set personal tolerance levels concerning what we are prepared to accept;
3) Remind ourselves of the life we are striving to create;
4) Refuse to let others dictate our mindset or outlook despite their behaviour or words.
Dismissing the negativity from around us goes a long way to ensure we face daily life in, at least, a neutral manner. And if some people resent or get offended by our position, well that is their problem rather than ours, no?
