Negative energy is just that. Negative. Negativity inside a person most times is exposed because of things that have happened in their past. DO NOT ENTERTAIN THIS. What happens when you allow the negative energy of others to get into your headspace:
People swallow you up and consume your life with their unhappiness in hopes that you will walk and talk this journey with them. (They are not looking for advice, but rather someone to "Amen" their negative way of thinking)
You have less time to focus on the more positive things in life
You spend less time doing things that make you happy because you have been told that it does not matter anyway
All your hopes and dreams are overtaken by someone else's downfalls and failures
Promotes unhealthy living - full of stress, which produces sickness.
"Wisdom is a tree of life to those who embrace her; happy are those who hold her tightly" - Proverbs 3:18
What you can do to promote a positive energy around you at all times:
Always remember first and foremost, God is real
Understand that life will happen whether you are "ready" or not
Decrease your expectations of other people, while increasing the expectations of yourself
Smile. Laugh. It promotes a healthier mindset
Create good memories and reflect on them often
Stay prayed up. With prayer comes results
Disconnect from technology on a routine basis and connect with nature
Deep breathing and slow breathing have amazing affects on the body should you do it correctly
When negative energy approaches, handle it. Professionally and respectably. You will walk away from this situation feeling proud, and smiling all over inside.
Be unpredictable. Lose the short tempered approach and just practice silence. Ignorant people do not know how to respond to silence.
Stop trying to keep up with the Joneses. Who you are and the blessings and struggles of your life belong to you. Whatever is meant to be in your life, will be.
Exercise to release good endorphins and eliminate stress
Surround yourself with people of your desired likeness.
Bottom line is you can never make everyone happy simultaneously. To even attempt is foolish. Live exactly the way you want to live as long as it promotes a better and happier YOU!
