You will groan for a while at positivity, you’ll get used to it eventually though.
Surround yourself with positivity:
When I started doing this, I actually surrounded myself with so much positivity it made me nauseous. I’m not even kidding. I couldn’t stand it.
But now I’m okay with it… and I’ve met new people, some of which are extremely positive, and they rub off on me a little here and there.
Don’t get angry with yourself if you get into a negative place… believe me, I still get there… a lot… and my when I talk to the positive people in my life they always make me feel better, even if just a little. They point things out from their perspective which can be really helpful.
Failure is the chance to do better next time.
I’m a well known perfectionist amongst my friends and professors. Because of everything going on this semester and for pushing myself too hard I have failed my first class. As a 4.0 student, I am devastated. As a person who already has such negative schemas about myself, I am beating myself up extremely hard for failing…
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, know struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen
