Life is short! Such a simple yet true statement that so many people forget. Life is finite. It ends far too quickly and the more time you spend stressing or surrounding yourself with negative people, the less enjoyable that life will be. I find as I get older that people are negative for two reasons. One, they feel bad about themselves and spread negativity to try and A) bring people down to their level and B) make themselves feel better about what is going wrong in their life. This type of negativity is toxic. I mean TOXIC! It will snap you of your will. The more you surround yourself with this type of negativity the more stress you will be under. The other type of negative person is someone who is going through a rough time and vents endlessly about it. This type of person can also cause you stress and drain you of energy but normally not as bad. The real trouble comes from being around both types of these people. No matter how positive you are, or how hard you try to achieve your aims, these people will drag you down. After a time the stress they give you will manifest in the form of pain. Personally I've been having shooting pain in the back of my shoulders for the past few weeks due to this. It is not a nice feeling. Once long ago I learned to meditate and find inner peace, but I have long since forgotten. That is what I need to do again. Walk away from everything and everyone I know and relax. Sleep, work out and spend time with people who encourage you. People who know how to enjoy life. Life is short, don't waste it on hate.
