    Remaining positive is a full time job.

    Positivity is one of those things that's a

    daily struggle for most people. The constant battle of finding the 'bright side' to every negative situation is good on paper, but when something drastic happens and takes you by surprise, it really does test you. However sometimes we can be left feeling down or negative by the...

    I think there are some people

    who are naturally inclined towards sadness, but I think that there are also people who are naturally inclined towards happiness . . . I feel like the latter. Like many people, I've been through a lot; unlike many people who have been through a lot, I remain happy. If there's...

    When days are bad, I choose to stay positive by

    keeping my mouth shut. I will be very quiet for a few hours in order to suppress the negativity & focus on things that can make me feel better. One thing I learnt through the years is not to say anything when I feel really low. Words that come out of my mouth may not sound...

    but sometimes it's really hard

    when you're surrounded by negativity .. negative surroundings, situations, negative people etc.. they say '' don't let it get to you '' .. that can be very challenging when that is every day..

    In life as bad as we may want to change others

    we never can so we have to accept that & turn them over into the hands of The Lord. We can't allow other people problems to become our issues as it will drain us mentally, physically, & emotionally if we allow it too! Don't give up on others but let go & let God!! Never stop...

    People really don't understand what's going on

    in the world. Count your blessings because at any given moment bombs could be dropped down in your neighborhood or you could be simply murdered by "law enforcements" for no apparent reason.

    I look in the mirror in the morning

    and tell myself that I look more feminine even though I haven't started HRT or anything. I also think about the future when I will start HRT and be able to dress like who I really am. I can't wait!

    that could make me feel depressed and attempt to ignore it. I want to stay positive so that I don't come off as whiny or like I have too many problems. Or that I get jealous easily :/ I hide so much.

    Regardless if something is personal

    or involves others in a particular situation I always try to remain positive. This is the only way to be in working things out personally and/or with others. When you are positive your problems will work out quicker than being sad and rebellious.
