Every day people make the choice to embrace a more positive way of thinking. Every day people take steps to make their psychological, physical, relationship facets congruent with each other in a positive and progressive sense. We see these people arrive at parties, at work, at the gym with huge smiles and seemingly mammoth changes in personality, language, and appearance. Some may be surprised by this change in tenor and be genuinely thrilled with this new development; others may find the new behavior bewildering. Skepticism can run rampart damaging relationships with those who mean to enhance their positive outlook and improve life. Can all this positivity rhetoric be overwhelming and obnoxious? Yes, it can be.
What if this person happens to be the one we wake up to everyday and see in the mirror? One must realize that changing your life for the better will have collateral circumstances. Sometimes these circumstances are additional sources of negativity that can inhibit and even derail our efforts. Frequently when people make these changes in life they lose friends, relationships end, priorities change, they are mocked publically, and privately. When this situations in life comes up and we ask ourselves: “What now?” Will we be supportive of positive changes in others? Will we have the resolve to give the constructive hard truth about tempering language and display? Will we be able to handle the change in our world when we stop being the same thing we always have been?
As uncomfortable as all this may be it is still a reality and something either party will have to make a choice on. In either position it comes down to courage, belief, perseverance. Have a great one!
