A great way to start this subject is with a quote and please feel free to correct me if I get it wrong.
I believe it was Einstein who said “Everything you are depends on whether you see the world as basically a good or a bad place.”
That quote is not exact but the point of it is! This is an extremely important idea. Do you see this world as a good or a bad place?
You may be thinking that it is a simple question but your answer may not be. To go forward however each of us must answer this question every day.
Some days your answer may be one thing and some days another which if fine of course because there is no right or wrong answer here but only what you feel.
There is a good chance that you have met someone in your life that you may have thought had a very different attitude to yours. Did this person’s attitude make you feel better or worse by being around him or her?
I think it’s fair to say that when you are around someone who lifts you up by their very attitude then you have something to learn from that person.
Likewise when you encounter someone who demonstrates negative behavior you may wish to get away from that person as soon as you possibly can.
Please excuse me for stating the obvious but like attracts like. If you want to feel good hang out with people who assist you in feeling good about yourself.
