I’m done with negativity. Everyone is negative and everyone complains. Even my own family. Even me. I was out with my husband this weekend and I had had enough. I told him, “for every negative thing you say, you have to follow it up by saying something positive.” I told the same to my daughter yesterday. Negativity fuels more negativity and it spreads like wildfire. This is not good for me, my illness, or anything else. I try to be positive, but I am guilty of judgment and negativity just like everyone else. But we need to call each other out on it. I am a Catholic and some of the worst negativity is coming from my fellow Christians. I told my oldest daughter that even if you don’t believe that Jesus is your savior, she could still learn a lot from Him. He was an amazing person to model your life after. No judgement, no negativity, only love. He saw the good in people and in hard situations. I’m a believer that there is good in every situation. You may not see it at first, but it is there. For example, when I was getting divorced I thought my world was ending. Now, I found the love of my life living happily every after. I love my husband so much more than I ever thought one could one person, children not included. I can’t imagine my life without him. I even find good in my illness. Bipolar disorder royally sucks, but because of it I am a very empathetic person. I know what it feels like inside to not want to wake up, I know what it is like to walk on cloud 9, and everything in between. I am very passionate and because I am I love helping. I dive into charities and I volunteer. I help people, animals, the environment, and anything I can. Change can begin with one person. Start with yourself. Be positive, see the good in every situation, and encourage others to do the same. Let rumors stop with you, don’t spread them. Stop all the negative and be the light you want to see in the world.
