Positive People

A friend of mine sent me this via text message on Monday. She knew what kind of day I was having and she thought this might help.

This quote really made me stop and think about a lot of the people in my life. Sometimes no matter how hard we try or how much effort we put into our relationships with other people it is never enough.

Relationships are a 50/50 deal it takes two people to make it work.This is the same in every situation from mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, sisters and even friends. One person can not make any of these relationships work by themselves you both have to put forth some effort to make the relationship work.

The negative people in your life will drain you and make you feel horrible about yourself even though you have done nothing wrong. The way they view their life will rub off on you.

The positive people in your life will make you feel good about yourself and you will  be happy. In return, you will spread that happiness around and pass it onto others.

I have come to the conclusion that I need a lot more positive people in my life.

  1. I think we all have those negative people in our lives whether it is family or friends. Now what we do about that is up to us since every situation is different. I find that the negative people in my life seem to be the controlling people in my life. Sometimes i wonder if those two go hand in hand.

  2. Yes, it is very true about positive and negative people. It can be hard to know exactly how to solve the problem of negative people especially if they are family. Good luck.

  3. This is one of my favorite quotes…it hangs on my desk at work… I read it everyday and try to live it.

    Negative family members just don’t get as much of my time. I’m not rude or angry, just keep my distance. I believe that the message is getting through, very gently & slowly. I have seen a positive change in the past several months! I hope it keeps up.
