Why are you so negative


I remember when I was working at this job, we had a women who would come in and every time we would see her she never had a nice thing to say.


She was forever negative,

“Beautiful day out today huh?” We would say and her responsFe would be

“Whats so beautiful about it? There’s too much pollen in the air, my allergies are acting up, I had to turn my heat on and now there was something wrong with it! Of course, yet another thing that will cost me money. Just like my car, that mechanic cost me so much money, they are such thieves always ripping you off….”


And on and on and on…

at this point we had already tuned her out and were sorry we even asked the question.

Now I know your all laughing because you too know someone like this, don’t you?


Yes, there are so many negative people out there. They can’t seem to find one nice thing to say, I know that personally as my grandmother who lived with us was just like this, day after day I had to endure her negative attitude.


I use to pray “Please God don’t make me like her” and God answered my prayers, not only am I not negative like her but I probably am one of the most positive people you will meet! Thank you God!


I dont get what makes someone be so negative, ¬†your alive there’s your first thing to be positive about, you woke up in a home, you slept in a bed, you had electric and hot water for your shower and your coffee, you have food and maybe even a car to get you to your job.You have a job… Wow isn’t that more than so many people around the world don’t have?


And yet your still not happy, you still feel like you have something to complain about. Really? How about you walked to the bathroom, you have both legs that work, you weren’t dragging an IV behind you or better yet having to use a bed pan.


You heard the alarm, you opened your eyes and saw the sunrise, you had vocal cords to yell at your dog. Does none of this deserve a blessing or at least some sort of praise?


How many people in this world that are sick and dying who would trade places with you in a heart beat? Yet your still complaining about stupid stuff!


I don’t have time for negative people anymore,

I have a limited time here on earth and I want to enjoy every second, I want to surround myself with people who appreciate it as much as I do. So if I avoid you, defreind you or stop taking your calls its because I have no time for your stupidity, you are so blessed and you don’t even know it and as many times as I’ve tried to tell you, you still don’t get it and I am really sorry for you.


You are missing out on so many wonderful things, because you are too busy complaining. I live my life being grateful and feeling blessed each and every day, I chose this, it is a choice!

See I saw first hand what being negative did to a person, how it made you angry and bitter, never happy about anything, how no one wanted to be around that and I chose not to be like that.


So today my friends, remember you can chose to be positive or you can chose to be negative it’s your choice, chose wisely.
