“Too Positive”……Really ?!
Yes !, I think to be optimistic, idealistic, and hopeful is a blessing!.
I get that it’s all in how you look at things and what your life experiences have brought you and who you have become because of them, but I have found it usually always pays off to look on the bright side, to be hopeful….. and like my Mom, optimistic.
In my family, My Mom was an optimstic person. I would say my brothers are “cautiously optimistic”. My Father, on the whole, kind of pessimistic.
I think it’s all in the life you have led. What your experiences have taught you…… and left you with.
Take those people you see on the news sometimes…They seem to have lost EVERYTHING….A house, car, and worse sometimes they’ve lost someone they love…. and at times, everyone they love………..
in one sweeping moment.
Yet there they are hoping for the best, being thankful for what and who they had in their lives in the first place.
Hope can be a stunning emotion.
Strength like that can make you speechless and leave you feeling blessed to witness it, and if you’re lucky, blessed to be a part of it.
My Mom, taking care of her, taught me this lesson.
To Hope…. regardless.
To stay positive and hopeful no matter what life throws at you.
I feel to turn my back on that to please others, would be ridiculous. I wouldn’t even entertain the thought. I never have. To be honest, there are only a select few people in this world that I do care what think of me where if they were disappointed in me or angry with would hurt me. So it would not be me, to stop being ME for others.
See, that’s it. “It would not be me”
So my question to you in this post is……Would it be you ?
It’s just a select few who can suck the life out of your enthusiasm and you don’t need that.
What To DO In That Case
Respect them because everyone’s opinion matters ….and people are to be respected for who they are.
They could be even family, friends, but at certain times in your life you don’t need that kind of outlook so…. don’t walk, run from those people. Someone telling you that being positive is a waste of time or trying over and over is a waste of time……walk away.
I have a friend who said the same thing to me. I was a little surprised to hear him say that because he is so kind and understanding with everyone…… but he’s right. Some people don’t want to see it your way.. Sometimes they can’t.
In the end you have to be who you are because you can be sure, they will go on being who they feel they need to be. Others will respect you for being you or they won’t. Others will love that hopeful side of you and some…won’t…..Possibly even because they themselves wish they had that quality that you have.
Whatever the reason, you have to stay true to who you are. You have come to be the person you are and come to where you are in your life for a reason. Your experiences and life so far has made you who you are. Don’t allow others to convince you that being hopeful, optimistic or positive is a waste of time.
It’s a blessing to have the heart to “see the brighter side.”
Life can be wonderful….But it have it’s tough moments as well…..As everyone knows. . When those tough times come and that road seems long, having those in life who can help you see the light at the end of the tunnel or have that strength to help you find yours, and who can maybe even teach you how to be a more hopeful person when those times come, to be a more positive person and soul can be a great thing.
It’s Not That Tough….But In The End
There will be those in this life who just don’t want you to succeed, have hope or reach your goal. That’s a sad fact, but it’s true.
That’s okay though, just keep moving forward. Different lives create different opinions. That’s a good thing and even though we can be so vastly different at times from one another the important thing to remember is we can still learn so much from one another. These people can even help YOU be a better person and be even MORE positive and optimistic by trying to help them!.
I am not perfect BY FAR but I hate to see others bogged down by troubles so I always try to help out if I can…..
The best thing to do I have found in certain circumstances is to, from those particular people, move on. I have had to do that to a degree at times. I have a really difficult time doing that. I have been really learning HOW to deal with people and life I could say It’s like learning to walk again, but truly it’s really learning to walk for the first time. But I am picking it up as I go just like everyone else did.
Don’t feel you have to tone down your optimism, hopeful outlook or idealistic outlook for others….
I know there are so many situations in your everyday life that call for you to hold on, hang in there and it can feel tough. That picture of me (above)…I’m may look a little mad. I’m not. I may look like a tough girl. I’m not, really.
Not All the time… Some will agree with me….Some won’t…..
Like I said …. that’s okay.
All I’m saying is this…
Protect your optimism…………….. It’s a gift.
Protect your hopeful attitude……. It’s a gift.
Protect your idealism……………….It’s a gift.
Protect who you are…………………………………It’s your gift.
To yourself and others. 🙂
