Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
Do I ever find myself around people who are negative? Are these people constantly complaining or criticizing others or their situation? Am I starting to feel like they’re affecting my attitude or outlook?
I don’t have to give other people that much power over my life. I can choose how I feel and what kind of attitude I have. I don’t have to listen to the negativity of others. I can set an example for them by making positive statements or by having a positive attitude toward them.
Some people simply aren’t happy unless they’re unhappy. Today I will choose not to be one of them.
I have many things in my life to be grateful for, and I will not let the negativity of others affect me.
