What They Told You Could Remove Any Positivity You Have In Life

Do you absorb everything people tell you?

Don't allow negative words to harm you

Do you absorb everything people tell you? 

Human beings absorb what they want to hear in any given situation.  Is that a true statement?  Or perhaps you’re one of those who take everything in?  

We live in a world of constant change, and with this change come many things, such as doubt, negativity, positivity, frustration, confusion, to say the few.  Each of us have a different perception of life and will also have a different reaction to words.  

Charles Spurgeon once said  “Begin as you mean to go on.”   This can sometimes be the driving force of beginning your day.  Sometimes we allow the smallest of things to ruin the rest of our day.  Sometimes we think the world is out to get us.  But this mindset can remove positivity from your life.  Change needs to happen.  

And mostly, words of others, should they pre-empt a negative impact, will affect you if you are not prepared.  Which again removes the positive vibes we all so much require.  Its interesting we put up our walls and defense mechanisms when we feel someone is attacking us physically and words will have the same affect on those who are weak and vulnerable. 

So this cycle of how words affect you will impact your life as a whole.  Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.  Ever heard someone say that at school to you?  I can guarantee to you that person who quoted that remained positive and strong willed throughout their school life.  

Why are we letting words impact our being?  They’re just words right??

Wrong.  For thousands of years, throughout history, words have made a huge impact on people’s lives.  It has changed the course of history.  It has changed the way we view our world.  And unfortunately, this will carry on affecting those who are not prepared or don’t have enough strength to defeat the words.  

So here’s what we can do about it. Collectively. For those who are on the other side of the fence, please find something better to do. Don’t ever think your words won’t impact someone mentally or psychologically. It will. Sometimes it can scar a person, metaphorically speaking of course. Stop doing it. It doesn’t serve any purpose in your life nor will it make you feel better. In fact, you are also removing positivity from your life by performing such action. 

            And for those who suffer from the impact of negative words, find ways to block them              coming into your mind – because that my friend, is where the battle commences.                      Make the steps realistic in your mind and commit to not allowing words to hurt you.                If ever you are in that position again, silence is golden. Your silence is your shield.

Our world needs positivity, especially in this day and age. Let’s make that change for the greater good.
