Dealing with the Negative: Keep Positive Yourself and It Will Trickle Down to the Kiddies...

Oscar-canHi Friends,
My Co-author Diane recently discovered a new blog that is focused on the positive. Making wise choices, thinking positive and dealing with the negatives in life in a pro-active way.

With foster parent burn out being a real threat, it's important to be reminded to look up at the sun sometimes.

With this in mind, I wanted to share this particular blog post about Trash Talkers (we have all dealt with them) in hopes it gives you a little pep talk, and maybe gives you some help in talking to your kids about similiar issues in the future.  Enjoy, and check out subscribe to Carrie's blog at : Carrie Jolie Dale

First off, remember the golden rule “If you cant say anything nice don’t say anything at all.”  

But doesn’t that sometimes just feel like you are the one getting short changed?

Doesn’t it just sometimes feel like those mean, negative nellies and neds need to be put in their place, and have one massive karmic review done? 

Trust me when I say, this one was hard for me. I was challenged big time on this one going through a difficult divorce and also making the decision to pursue my love of writing + coaching. 

The divorce situation if almost understandable(albeit frustrating), but why the coaching and writing? Why would people be negative about that?

Why would anyone be negative towards you when you decide to chase your dreams, speak your truth,and  live your passions? 

Because it stirs up their fears, their insecurities, and their wounds. If they are bashing what you are doing, and picking on you—chances are they see you stepping into your light, and they notice how they have allowed their own light to be dimmed.

There are going to be those that try to knock you down—always.
When we, as entrepreneurs—CHOOSE to spread our wings and GO FOR IT—it can stir up stuff in others. 

It’s not you.  It’s not about you.  

And it really doesn’t matter what they think about you. It doesn’t matter if they like you, what you write, or what you are creating.

What they think of you is not the point. How you react to negativity—in any form—is the point.
