We all experience this in our life, and many times over. Sometimes it comes from us, without us even knowing it. When or how we talk at times, can be taken differently by someone else. The tone a person uses, or their stance on positions or issues may not be the same as us. Political differences? Religious differences? Sporting differences? Habit differences? And on and on.
You can reduce the negativity, by distancing yourself from the force. I do not think it is actually a good thing, to reduce the negativity to zero.
And there is a reason for this. Life is designed to challenge your mind. By removing the negativity, you remove the challenge. Where the negativity is forced on you, there is not much you can do, in the extreme sense of being in like a prison type atmosphere, per say.
But, challenges are made to be conquered, and thus your negativity. You will run into it, off and on. How you manage it, depends how negative you make it.
When you fluff off the negativity, as nearly nothing, then you have succeeded in the challenge by making it as if it were just a positive thing, which, only can make you stronger.
Once again, you can remove negativity from your life. Walk away if it is too intense. Regroup, relax, and learn a different angle on how to handle it. If the negativity is plain and wrong, against the law, then remove it and let a higher power handle it. No one should deal with a constant, abusive, negative power.
But, where you are handling a negativity to your personal preference, stand up and be counted. Challenge it, until it becomes a positive- meaning, you overcame and it decided to no longer be that depressing force that it once was... But a force that is now bridled... Controlled...
Till next time...
