Dealing with negative emotions

I have a confession to make.  I sometimes tend to be a negative person.  Negative, not in terms of polarity, but in attitude.  I am so inclined to make mountains out of molehills.  What makes me feel worse is the fact that this negativity rubs off on other people… the very people I love.

Little things get to me…a flat tire, the neighbor’s raspy karaoke voice.  And before I know it, I’m lashing out on my significant other.  When negativity strikes, all hell breaks loose.

Emotions are a result of our thoughts, and not facts.  If you’ve failed once at an attempt to win a girl, and you feel that all hope is lost at finding true love, well, that doesn’t actually mean that you will never succeed.  You feel hopeless, because you THINK everything is hopeless.  So, when I feel depressed because I feel there is no solution to a problem at hand, that’s merely a result of how I think.  It doesn’t mean that there is no solution.

I hope there was a cure for this, a bitter pill I could just as easily swallow.  But it seems to be ingrained in my personality.  And they say, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  But then again, you’re never too old to learn…

  1. Even negative things always seem to work out in the end, but saying that never helps. I’m kind of negative myself, so I completely understand.

But always remember that LIFE is a matter of choice!! if you have chose to become negative then the rest will follows and vice versa!!! don’t let your negative feelings rule your life!!
