We often times find ourselves in negative situations. Someone might be treating us badly. Someone might be treating another person badly, right before our eyes. We might come across someone from our past that we aren’t to keep on. We all have faced negative situations at one point in time. There are ways to stay positive during these times, you just have to know what to do.
The natural instincts.
Our natural instincts when dealing with something or someone negative is to unleash the dogs of war. But this might just cause more problems. By unleashing the dogs of war, you are causing more chaos in the long run, without even knowing it. So the best way to deal with a negative situation is to be positive, at all times. Being positive is a choice, nothing more, nothing less.
How to stay positive in a negative situation.
Be careful with what you say to the other person. You know the old saying, “If you can’t say something nice, then keep your mouth shut.” Well the same rules apply here. So to help you out further with this you need to learn to reduce your stress. If you learn to handle stress with more ease and comfort, that will help you when responding to a negative situation. If you make this mistake, focus on what triggered this mistake and focus no not doing it again.
Learn from your experiences. We are all works in progress, remember that. If you react badly, recognize what you did and learn how to correct it. Figure out the triggers and what caused you to “freak out”. Look at it as an opportunity to grow and learn. Sometimes these can be the best tools that you have at your disposal.
Learn to admit when you did something wrong. This is a hard one for most people. Most of us don’t like to admit when we are wrong, especially when it means destroying our pride and ego. Destroying the ego is the toughest thing to do and yet, the most important decision to make. Don’t allow those two things to take over. If you have made a mistake, admit what you have done and then move on. Try to correct those mistakes with the other person involved. Learn what not to do when the situation comes around again. If the person will not give you a chance to explain yourself, this too, is negative. So make the choice to just stay away. I always say that experiences are the best lessons learned.
Remove the clouds from your life. Always stay positive in any type of situation. Don’t allow another’s negativity to cloud your judgment. If the person is negative toward you, leave them alone. You don’t need any more reasons to invite negativity into your life. So don’t give the triggers a chance to win. If you have made this mistake, than make the choice to correct it. Simply go back to leaving them alone. You tried your best, now move forward. Always address any type of situation with a positive attitude. It also doesn’t hurt to reach inwards to your faith in God. Just ask God and he will give you the best solution and road to take. Always kill with kindness.
Remember, negativity can only win if you let it.
