All around us, everywhere we go, everywhere we look, everywhere we read there is hate. We have become so hateful of those around us it is hard to find the happiness and good in the world. The news reports anything and everything negative. As you scroll through your social media how many posts are negative versus positive? As you look at popular news feeds does anything bring happiness to you soul?
We have become so used to the negative that we feed off of it and create more negativity. I notice as one negative thing is posted people respond (whether the agree or disagree) with more negativity. And lots of times when a positive thing is posted or on a news feed negative remarks are made about it also. There is no winning in the negativity war we are engaged in. We are building a world of hate and intolerance towards people we do not know. It is so easy to make a rude comment to someone on social media that you do not know or ever plan to meet.
Why not be the person who lifts others up? Why not be the person who gives comments of encouragement and support? Why not be the one to start a movement of love and positivity? It has to start with someone, so why not you? We each have good inside of us. If we start today to build that instead of building the negativity the world would be a much better place.
There are numerous articles and studies that have proven we are wiring our brains for negativity. https://tinybuddha.com/blog/complaining-rewires-brain-negativity-how-to-stop/. This is only one example.
This negativity becomes who we are unless we stop it now. We can do better! We can be better! We are better than what we have become! Start each morning with something positive and share something positive with someone. Help others, don’t judge, lift and inspire, give a smile, show you care. “Be The Good!”
