As this week was spent with family and friends remembering our loved one and others that have already passed away we shared many stories of both good and bad times. But, we also found ourselves being surrounded with the constant negatives, drama and soul draining complaints by our loved ones being miserable, worrying over the unknowns of the future, of gossiping about others, of the complaints about their lives and those around them, we were asked for advice numerous times and more often than not asked what we knew, what we had heard and were constantly surrounded and felt as though they were attempting to suck us in to the negatives that they thrive on!!!
It is amazing to me that they want the best of everything , they want happiness like my husband and I have, they want more out of life but yet are unwilling to change, to try new things, to try and change their surrounds, to try to be positive and to see the Good within their lives with the blessings that they already have but yet they are unwilling to change their negative ways, they are so unwilling and close minded to see how easy it is to start seeing the Good Within Their Lives!! It really saddens me and hurts my heart and soul!!
This is part of why my husband and I moved a year ago once we became emptynesters….we wanted more and we wanted to distance ourselves from all of the negativity….we wanted to leave it all behind us. All I can do now is Love Them Unconditionally, be here for them and help them as best I possibly can…..all I can do is encourage them and try to guide them into more positive and happy thoughts but ONLY if and when they ask for it…..All I Can Do Is Live My Life To Be The Happiest, The Most Positive And The Most Life Loving Person That I Can Be!! Where do you fit into any of my above scenario, are you a complainer and negative or are you the Happy Life Loving Person?!?!?! Do what makes YOU Happy, surround yourself with Positive People who bring out the best in you and Live Your Life even if you have to distance yourself from loved ones in order to be the Best Person You Can Be!!!
