There is an expression that goes along the lines of -
"You don't have to attend every argument
You are invited to."
Never were truer words spoken. It is through life’s harshest experiences and toughest challenges that this mindset is born... And it is most certainly one that I choose to adopt. Now don’t get me wrong or misconstrue what I am saying... This does not mean that I don’t have an opinion or that certain things don’t upset me etc. It simply means that wherever I can, I make a conscious decision to walk away from situations when I can see that they are clearly heading nowhere other than South.
Negativity and negative people have a handy knack of embroiling you into their world of turmoil and despair...and once you step so much as a toe into that abyss, you will most likely look again and find that you fell in completely... Your entire energetic frequency has lowered, your ego begins to dominate and before you know it, you are feeling angry, bitter, frustrated etc. And this then starts to filter into the rest of your immediate environment. So why opt for that route In the first place?! Well, I don’t think it is always done consciously...
Negative people and circumstance can be very cunning indeed. For the most part, you will need to check yourself... Stop and say “do I really want to be a part of this?” Upon objective reflection you will most likely realise that it is not actually in your best interest, but the challenge comes in the turning around and walking the other way.
I find that some times are easier than others, But the fact remains that every time I succeed at this, I am very thankful after. My life is comprised of my choices, and I definitely choose NOT to fill it with negativity... So I will say what I want to say (if anything) And then, keep on walking...And if that leaves me being misread or misunderstood by the negative inviter...Well, tough. ;)
Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx
