Good news! There ARE none! YAY! nuff said.
I used to sit and strategize… If I eliminated all the negative people in my life… Then I could be positive and THEN I could be happy, gorgeous, successful and uber awesome. How do I plan my escape from these people and leave them behind? Mwaha hahahaha… (sinister laugh).
Oh! Problem with this thinking? I’m screwed! It actually makes ME the negative one. Let me explain. Turns out (damn it)… I cannot rid the world of so-called negative people. More importantly, I had to realize there ARE no negative people. Yup! People are just people. They are who they are. It’s MY own negative thought about them that makes it negative. MY thought, MY negativity, MY shit! (not them).
When I think… Gawd… She’s so negative or Those people at ——are so annoying. It makes me feel annoyed. When I feel annoyed – I act annoying, complain to other people who also like to complain… Therefore, attracting more complaining people who are also annoying. You see where this is going?… I realize – Geeee! (head scratch) I’ve got these negative people around me. I had to look in the mirror and say… I put them there, I called them negative and I created it all! (sorry people-my bad)… And that is good news!
Here’s what I choose to think about people now:
Everybody’s got their own f*#kin’ jump off — and that’s awesome
People are actually perfect in their own way
People should do what they do
Peeps should think what they think
People are who they are and it’s totally cool
Other people don’t have to think what I think.
I am who I am, I choose to think awesome thoughts and get awesome results!
