We live in a negative world.
Maybe it’s always been this way but it seems worse because of social media. I don’t really know. But closer to home, I look back and see that I’ve always been surrounded by negative people. I didn’t know any different as I was growing up, but as an adult, I can see it now.
Remember Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? He was always expecting and waiting for the worst. He’s cute in the stories, but I don’t think I could hang out with him for long periods of time.
And then I realized… I do have Eeyores in my life. I always have. Maybe you do too.
