Negativity on social media
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Social media has lead me to an interesting realization. I have a few family and friends who are incredibly negative. I don't mean having a bad day or week. They never post one positive or affirming thing. Everything has a grumbling, nasty, woe is me vibe. And the thing is, they are "happy" being miserable. They sometimes even post negative and mean things about their families/spouse/kids. I guess that is what people mean when they say someone is toxic.
I resist the urge to offer advice because I learned that those people do not want help, they want sympathy (and sometimes money). I do believe we have the power to change our lives and that change starts with our attitudes. Life will only get better if we take charge and make it better. And we might even realize that how much we have.
