Looking at the positives

Some of us will see life negatively before we take the positives from it, others will simply see life negatively and continue to see life negatively. We must be thankful we’ve come through the other end.

It’s often difficult to see why our lives map out a certain way, or what the purpose of the experience was. Whatever happens, there is also no point in looking back wishing our lives were different, because that doesn’t change where we are or what we have to deal with.

No matter how many times we look back, our experiences will come out the same way and we will have the same answers. Instead, we must look at what we have achieved through our new accomplishments and continue to build our life around those.

  1. There is a definite tendency for people to look on the positive or negative side of a situation.

    When I am not in the mood to think positively about something that has been done or said, I try to look at what has worked for me previously and what hasn’t worked, and remember it the next time.

    Understanding that we couldn’t have changed some things as they are ‘meant to be’ is a comfort.

    1. Thanks. It’s good that you can. Not knowing about a disability, brain damage, or a neurological disorder and only just finding out about the latter, is a big fat negative, not something you would or could ever contemplate or understand.

      Because my life has moved on positively, it feels easier to know I couldn’t change things and that does bring about comfort. I tried and have changed what I could, and believe it depends how big the issue is and how long it went on for.

      Although my mum was instrumental in saying something that made me think about my life, I know that if it wasn’t for me being proactive, I wouldn’t be at this place. That’s the bit I am trying to reconcile.
