    I'm Trying Not to Be

    I'm a horribly negative person, but I'm trying not to be. Just when I think I'm getting better, something changes and I'm back to being negative.   No matter what it is, I always see the down side. I don't know how to stop.

    The Glass Is Always Half Empty...and Theres a Hole In the Bottom.

    I never see the positive side to anything... ever!   That way, I'm not disappointed when something bad happens, and if something good does happen {Yeah, right} then I'm pleasantly surprised.

    I thrive in anger and bitterness.

    if I am angry I get things done and make things happened. Without anger energy i am a lame conformist that everyone overlooked and abuse. If I am not angry I am trying so hard to help and please everyone and never do anything for mysef

    I Have Been Told I Am Very Negative

    I definitely am negative I spose, people say it to me and I'm rather sarcastic most of the time and I can rarely be bothered to do anything I commit to! Everything seems a chore and I don't enjoy moments.

    Just because you lived a tough life with a disability doesn't make you a negative person. The same people who tell me I'm too negative are the ones who avoid me, tell me hurtful things, KNOWING I'm sensitive, & never point out anything positive. They point out attributes...
