How to Overcome Negativity for Good


It's difficult to control the words people use on us and some people get their kicks by saying hurtful things. Here are some of the few things you can do to keep your happiness and prevent negative words from ruining your day.

 
1. If someone tries to offend or belittle you, do not participate in his or her game. If you do not participate in the game, he or she will leave you, since t takes two to play the game.
2. Tell yourself that you are going to stay calm, happy and positive, no matter what people say or do. Repeat these words often, until your mind accepts them unconditionally.

3. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Don't assume someone is trying to offend or hurt you. Sometimes, they might be just joking or maybe they are having a bad day.

4. Pause briefly and think, before reacting instinctively or getting emotional. Maybe people are not referring to you? Don't jump to conclusions, without thinking first.

Remember; while you can't control what people say, your reaction is your sole responsibility. Have a great Week.
