I surround myself with positive people because I believe that, next to my own determination to live fully, the company I choose to keep determines the quality of my life.
I let go of the idea that being positive requires a permanent grin on my face.
However, I also free myself from the effects of those who would drag me down by their perpetual focus on all that is wrong or unfair in their lives.
I pick my closest friends among those who can acknowledge their challenges and all their feelings, including anger and resentment, but don’t get bogged down in them.
They analyze their problems in search of solutions, and they help me do the same.
Sometimes life is tough, and I want my friends to be able to admit their difficulties to me, just as I want to be able to be honest with them.
Together we will help each other find and draw out the beauty and opportunities that are just waiting to be discovered within each new challenge.
How can you confuse acting happy with being positive?
How do you contribute to a positive attitude among family and friends?
