We live in a negative society, and it seems sometimes everyone around us has a negative outlook. Sometimes, it’s difficult to be positive, especially when everyone around is complaining. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being like everyone else, and some might even try to compete with who has it worse. The hard thing to do is to find a positive, when everything around seems to be going wrong.
There are ways for someone to battle the feelings that try to surface when this happens. The first thing is to realize no matter how bad things get, it could always get worse. When someone is always focused on what is going wrong and how horrible their life is, they are actually bringing more negative energy in their life, because that is what they are sending out. I call this you reap what you sow. When someone speaks negative their words have energy, and power. This can affect the person speaking, and anyone around them.
The next strategy, to combat, these negative thoughts, or feelings is to pray, and believe that things are going to get better. Instead of speaking more negative, say a prayer, and then thank the Father, for acting on your behalf. The Father is a faith God, and if we are speaking negative it’s not walking in faith but, instead doubt. Try to catch negative thoughts, before you speak it into existence, say something positive instead. Focus on the fruits of the spirit, when doing this.
The next thing is to feed your spirit something positive. Listen to some faith teachings, or plug yourself into some praise, and worship music. There is power in praise. Sometimes an uplifting praise song will make negative emotions fade away. It can also change the atmosphere around someone, and will affect things in a positive manner.
