Thoughts: Negativity

October 11, 2016

Today’s been an up and down day. And again, something has been re-enforced to me:

I need to get away from negativity.

I find that in the corporate world, and I think in particular the care-giving industry; there’s a lot of negativity in terms of things that a person has to deal with, has to see to, has to try and sort through, everything that has to be listened to; that just gets a little bit much sometimes. I need to take myself out of an environment that can give people a reason to be negative.

Make no mistake, there are positives, but there has come a point where negativity has tipped the scales; that it’s not worth it to be in that environment anymore. I need to be in an environment where I can control how much negativity comes my way and what I can take into account and what I can toss.

I’m also aware that the environment that I’m working my way towards isn’t always going to be sunshine and roses, but I will still be in control of a lot of the environment that I’m in, and in control of what I expose myself to.

At this point in time, I’m being exposed involuntarily to a mostly negative environment, and I need to get away from that. And I know that I’m steadily getting closer to where I want to be.

Until next time,

Carmen.
