Things You Can Control #2

Your attitude.

Maintaining a positive attitude is hard work. Obviously, not everyone can manage to be a ball of sunshine 100% of the time.

But it’s better to try than never at all, right?

Who likes a sour face? Who likes a hot-headed man? Who likes a rude person? Who likes a moper?

Chances are, you don’t really feel comfortable dealing with people like this. It takes a great amount of energy to interact with these people. They’re like soul suckers. They suck the positive out of you and turn you into one of them.

I agree. There’s a lot of shit going on in the world. But there’s also a lot of amazing things going on as well. A lot of chances to be taken.

I’m not saying you should ignore the bad things and live in an ignorant bliss. I’m saying you should acknowledge the positive things and work on how you can spread the love so the bad things could subside in some ways.

Negativity doesn’t pay. Being rude doesn’t pay. Shitting on life (and then don’t do anything to make it better) doesn’t pay.

We live in an ever-changing, ever-improving world. Being a pessimist is a mediocre thing to do. Being rude is a basic thing to do.

Do yourself and the entire universe a favour and control your attitude. Change it if necessary.

Things You Can Control.

Your beliefs.

You can choose what you believe in. You can defend what you think is right. What you can’t do is force other people into agreeing with you.

In an era where everyone is trying to make themselves relevant, it’s hard not to offend a certain group of people.

As a teacher of mine once said, A joke is just that: a joke. Some people will take it seriously, so be careful of what you assume is a joke.

It’s the same case with opinions. I have my own beliefs and you have yours. I don’t have to force an opinion of mine into your mind just because I think my beliefs is better. It goes vice versa.

Respect is the key. You can’t control others.
