I came across an Instagram post by a honeymooning couple, which said
“I love you for what you are, and for what I am when I am with you.” Perfectly positive!
It made me think about the influence others have on us. Replace the word ‘love’ with ‘dislike’ or ‘hate’, and yet, it would make perfect sense. Negative people draw out the negativity in us. The feelings generated could be anger, resentment, disgust, hatred or plain helplessness. It sucks out the positive, at least for the hour or day, till we change the mindset.
The key is to surround ourselves with people who draw out the best in us. Walk away from negativity!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
