Some things may not go as well as you may like in life. There may be things in your life that has created negativity. It may be out of your control, which can be tough to deal with. It can also be in your control, but hard to make changes, which causes a mental struggle. Negativity will find its way into your life. Unless you are able to purely practice detachment, this is reality. We can’t avoid it. The thing we must learn to do is finding ways to cope with it.
The thing one must do is to try not to let the negatives consume your entire life. We tend to overgeneralize the problems in our lives. We don’t see things in pieces, but as wholes. If we are struggling in one aspect of our lives. We tend to see it as our whole life as falling apart, but that isn’t reality.
This is where we need to find the positives. We need to create the positives to overwhelm the negatives, so that it isn’t the main focus. Now the most important thing is to be in the present! If you are not in the present, nothing can get done. Next is figuring out what positive thing you can create, or do.
I will use positive things I have been doing as examples. Recently, I have been waking up earlier, so that it can give me more time to do the things I want to do. I have also been cooking more recipes that I have wanted to do for a long time. I have also decided to not use my phone, or be online as much, so I can focus my energy on writing, gaining knowledge, and reading. These all have been positive benefits in my life that have uplifted me. It also gives me a sense of accomplishment.
Accomplishment!, that is important to us. If things aren’t going well in other aspects of your lives. Find things in your life that you can accomplish, and achieve to balance out those negatives in your lives. This will give you time to focus more on the good things, rather than putting your energy on negativity.
The is a whole world out there to be explored. There are plenty of things you can learn and grow from. There are plenty of things to experience. There are plenty of things to achieve. It is up to what you can do with it, and how to find it. Don’t put your energy on the things you are struggling with. Put it on the things you benefit from.
