In our quest to live more positive lives, we have become a country filled with people who think they are better than the next person. More and more folk are writing and talking about leaving negative people behind. Too bad they don't realize there are no throw away people. We all have a purpose on this earth.
It is our perspective that determines whether a situation or person is negative. The very thing that may seem negative to you, wouldn't bother another person because of the way they choose to view the information they are presented with. I submit that many folk are negative themselves, so therefore they see negativity in most aspects of their lives.
I know from experience people are people. We all have different experiences, but we are basically the same. We all need love, affection respect, acknowledgement, but for some reason folk choose to be withholding. These same folk will profess to be Christians. Followers of Jesus who turned no one away, especially not the down and out. Yet, many of his followers today would be the first to turn a blind eye to someone in need. Many will try to find scripture to justify not doing right by someone else. This is the biggest tragedy.
People know better. They know they should be more empathetic, compassionate and understanding, but they are too self-centered and caught up in their on realities to do and be right.
