    Even If It Comes So Naturally

    After years of depression and self incrimination , I'm doing all I can to be an optimist , or least more positive . My negativity was so self defeating , so crushing that I refused to give in any longer . My life is still at the bottom rung of the ladder of success but that doesn...

    I Just Have Positivity

    In thinking and everywhere. If you "avoid" something, you already completely focus ON THAT. LOL The best is to not avoid anything. While have what you want.

    Well, Trying To

    There are some things in life we may do our very best to avoid, only to find that those very things will find us eventually anyways, if that is the way it is supposed to be!

    How Do You Attempt to Avoid Negativity When It Is All Around?

    I've been attempting to avoid negativity for awhile now but I'm finding it rather difficult. I suffer from chronic pain so whenever I am awake (which is ~20 hours/day) I'm constantly reminded about the circumstances which lead to my injury which in turn bring negative thoughts...

    It is really hard to stay postive. I can have 10 wonderful things going on in my life, but I will be more focused on the 2 or 3 problems.

    Haven't Been Here Very Long, But . . . .

    I've been a member at EP for only a few months and I have come to a few 'conclusions' of my own: EP is whatever YOU want it to be Why bother commenting on someone's story if you don't have something nice to say? Seriously? Putting other people's EP names in the title...

    At Least....

    I am trying to avoid negativity, however, almost everyone in my life outside of EP, is nothing but negative around me, and it gets to be too much sometimes. i am not sure why that is, maybe that is why I am so damn depressed lately, and why I can't get a hang on life, and...

    I'm tired of coming on to EP.

    I notice I come across a ton of perverts that just want to get into my pants. In addition, I run into people who just want to start arguments with me. It's really depressing. I thought this was supposed to be a safe place to express your thoughts and feelings. It's making me...

    Ah, Negativity

    Avoid all cynicism, negativity, bitterness, pessimism and nihilistic thoughts. I've experienced enough of them already.

    Back Away!

    I am a naturally optimistic, upbeat person. However, regardless of the stereotypes about people who see the glass as "half-full," I am aware that everything in Life is not peachy-keen. To me, being an optimist and avoiding negativity isn't about anything other that...

    No More

    I used to be a fuel tank for other people, but I also used their fuel as well. Negativity is very draining, but also it's very easy. It's much easier to be negative and skeptical than positive and optimistic. Positivity requires more energy for investment and not many are willing...

    Avoiding Negativity...

    The only way to really avoid negativity is to surround yourself with positivity. It may seem like the world is full of negativity, and there is no hope for a brighter world, but that is only the way they want us to feel. Who is they? The media, the government, corporations, etc...

    Only Way to Be Happy...

    Every now and then I think everybody needs a bit of negativity, but I think most of the time it is better to avoid negativity. It just makes you a happier person, I think.

    I'm Doing the "Un-popular" Thing...
