Negative thinking not only takes away your happiness but also makes it hard for you to achieve success in life. People hate to stick around you since they fear negativity might shift towards them. You loose true friends and loving relationships. Negativity hampers your professional and personal growth and makes it hard for you to maintain good relations with people around you. Here are a few thoughts that lessen your chances to keep true friends in your life.
Others have it easier
It may be your own misconception since all have their own struggles to deal with. Each one of us faces adversities in life and only those who keep themselves strong come out successful. Use your troubles to make you even stronger and never make a comparison since it brings differences among your relationships.
They are different
We all are different but when you start using it as a reason to hate others or dislike them, life would be much more difficult. Learn to accept people the way they are and appreciate the differences. Each person must have his/her own identity, as this is the beauty of life. Love yourself and others unconditionally since no one is perfect.
It’s all their doing
Playing a blame game is so easy and it certainly makes you feel good since you really do not have to put in efforts. However, the outcome is you end up feeling disappointed and discouraged. Learn to accept the realities of life and move on with the choices you have with you. It leads you to your goals and brings you closer to your loved ones.
Not able to forgive
When you get hurt in your life, you have two options. You either hold a grudge against them and never get close to others or forgive them and move on. When you decide to keep yourself at a distance, you not only keep yourself from right people in your life but also feed your fear of getting hurt. On the contrary, when you forgive others and take a lesson from your past relationship you turn into a better person who has a better understanding of relationships. You open ways to meet people who value you even more in life.
Too busy to make time for family
All success and achievements mean nothing when you do not have your friends and loved ones to share your happiness. You may earn a big pile of money but worldly possessions can never give you the happiness you get with your loving family. Make time for your friends and family and let them know you value them. You may touch new millstones of success in life but hardly get your loved ones who stand by you through thick and thin.
A Feeling of failure
You may be sad for a day or two but this is only a temporary feeling. Having a bad day does not mean that you are not worthy of success. Universe has its own ways to make you stronger than ever, have full faith in your abilities and give your best. Live life day-by-day, do not let failures of today ruin your tomorrow. You turn into a better individual each passing day and become more capable to make more achievements in life.
Trying to be someone you are not
We all make a mistake to be like most others so that we get an acceptance in the society. You feel that only likeminded people get an appreciation. You lose your true self in an attempt to be like someone else. Do things that you really believe in and make your own separate identity among all. This gets you a true acceptance from all others around you.
Feeling negative is quite natural for all of us. The moment you find yourself thinking negative, address that negative thought and convert it into a positive one. You can never afford to lose your loving relationships due to your negative thinking.
