- Does that make you unhappy?
- Do you go into “victim mode” and start looking for someone to blame for your misfortune?
If you answered yes to all or any of those questions you may want to read further.Life is never a long, straight, smooth road for anyone, we all experience curves, bumps, hills, rocks, maybe even landslides or accidents along the way. The important thing to remember is that we only have full control over one aspect of our life…..that is our attitude toward it.
Those who espouse a positive attitude, never letting the obstacles that are thrown in their path, distract them from their goals and aims, who always look for the silver lining in the clouds and solutions to whatever problems they encounter, are the people who will likely live longer, enjoy more success, be healthier, and have more fun. On the other hand, those who only ever see the glass as half empty, dwell on their mistakes, and always look for someone else to blame when something goes wrong, are certainly not the people we want to spend much time with.
Individuals who are always disappointed, resentful, and complaining are not much fun to be around, in fact, they can make even a positive, happy person feel a bit depressed. Most of us are not keen on being around people who are so negative. Rather it is much better and more interesting to spend time with those who feel life is too short to spend all your time worrying about what bad event will happen next, or why their life is so bad, etc.
