What I Say Changes How I Feel

Couple Sitting on Bed

Yesterday, I was frustrated with the man in my life.

For a moment, I let the frustration grow to anger by thinking about all the reasons I should be upset… searching for past hurts… predicting things he might do in the future.

Then I shifted my thinking to everything I love about him… all the wonderful past memories… what our future holds… and what a great man he is.

The anger… frustration… and fear became very small, almost nonexistent.

I’ve learned that when I badmouth people I love, I like them less.

When I think negative thoughts about the people I love, I like them less.

The more negative thoughts I have, the more negativity I will collect… and the more negative I will become.

When I speak kindly of the people I love, I love them more.

When I think positive thoughts about the people I love, I love them more.

The more positive thoughts I have, the more positivity I will collect… and the more positive I will become.

  1. I have always thought that one must always think positively (as much as possible anyway) about people, situations, dreams, problems, everything. Life can very quickly overwhelm us with negativity if we don’t at least try to keep it at bay!

    • Yes! And when the negativity starts, I can feel it inside my body–it just feels awful. I’m glad I can catch it quickly before it is out of control… 🙂
