There are just so many positive things that are taking place day to day around you, but sometimes (and it happens to all of us), we cross paths with someone who just doesn’t seem to see all the wonderful and positive experiences that life has to offer. The most valuable advice I can give you is that no matter how much negativity a person throws off, reflect it and add a positive spin. I know that it can be frustrating to be around someone who is negative, but you have to realize that no matter how negative a person is, they cannot interfere or take away your happiness. You have the power to lead a life filled with joy, happiness, and positive experiences, and nobody can pull you off course.
People who are negative are not born that way; they simply are out of focus. They see everything that is going wrong in their life as opposed to all the wonderful experiences that are going right in their lives. When a person is being negative, the best thing that you can do is smile and direct everything that is said into something positive. By doing this, you will keep your mind in a positive state, lighten the conversation and encourage the one being negative to look on the bright side. Here are some examples:
Example 1: You are at lunch with a coworker who is just not in a good mood. She starts complaining about the restaurant you are at. “The service is terrible, the food is bland and I have so much work to do when I get back to the office.”
Positive Spin: It is so wonderful to be able to take a break from work to have lunch with you. The atmosphere of this restaurant is so warm and inviting. Can you believe we are halfway through the week? I am sure you have a lot of great plans for the weekend.
Do you see the difference? Everything that was negative was turned into a positive suggestion. By saying “I am sure you have a lot of great plans for the weekend,” you are indirectly suggesting to the person you are with to think positive and also helping them to shift to a better, positive state of mind and focus on something that will make them happy. The best solution for dealing with someone who is negative is having great communication and gently redirecting the conversation to maintain a positive and lighter tone. One of the things that you can also do when you know that you will be communicating with someone who is negative is to offer them a compliment when you first see them.
This can be something simple, like “Your outfit looks great today” or “I really like the tie you are wearing. It looks nice on you.” Be sure that you are sincere and that it is something that you truly admire and like about the person. By offering a compliment, you are doing three things. First, you are opening the conversation in a positive way, showing that person something positive about them, and also, you are training your mind to think positively about that person when you see them. Always remain confident in knowing that their negative thoughts and words cannot put a damper on your day. When you find yourself dealing with someone negative, use it as motivation to find the positive aspect of every situation. The more positive and happy that you are, the more positive and happy people you will start to attract into your life.
Remember that you can handle any negative situation that comes your way. If you are ever feeling stressed out, all you have to do is ask your family members in Heaven for their assistance. You are never alone through anything; your loved ones in Heaven are always right behind you and supporting you. Whenever you feel stressed out or anxious because of a negative situation at hand, just close your eyes and ask for their support, and you will immediately feel relaxed and at ease when you start to feel their presence around you.
Our angels and loved ones on the other side see tomorrow so much more clearly than we see today. Always trust and have faith that something wonderful is going to happen!
