Negativity

Question? Why are so many people so stuck on wanting to be negative? Negativity breeds only Negativity…is this one of the many unanswerable questions of the Decade? Don’t they know the power to be positive lies totally within themselves and it is their choice to be negative?? Hmm is it a oxymoron, or paradox of life? I guess the real question should be what purpose does my negativity serve me? Because there must be a reward to it for so many people to engage in it.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in our heart, and try to love the questions themselves for they are like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not seek the answers which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. - Rainier Maria Rilke

    BECAUSE WE LET THEM….
    I think everyone can have an occasional negative moment…And depending on who, what and why…many of us chose to be sympathetic, especially when the people losing their tempers are dealing with some serious bullshit that everyone can relate too… But losing one’s temper and resorting to being a dick, dehumanizing attacks on others that call them abusive names and express hatred should never be recommended or condoned as a routine tactic.
    Being civil with people who hold views we find negative or fucking wrong acknowledges their moral right to freedom of thought and conscience…. We don’t need to be friends with people with who we don’t share values with… We don’t need to associate with people whose behaviors, values, and practices will put us in situations where our own self dignity or right to be treated according to our own values will be stepped on… But as it is, we are all forced by circumstances to interact with other people, we need protections so that we are neither violated nor unfairly marginalized by people whose values are domineering and harmful to our own flourishing. We need the law to protect everyone’s ability to flourish without being bothered by someone elses prejudicial values.

    Give em an inch and they’ll take a mile…If you’ve got a system that gives you the results you want, would you change from it?
    Negative people (in my opinion) have little or no intergrity…they enjoy it, point blank.

    And as long as it’s beneficial and they can get away with it (and they will, more times than not because of “political correctness”, avoiding conflict and people fearing legal recourse for possible denying someones rights) Most people will buckle and figure that if they stay calm and reasonable then maybe their view point will be percieved as most valid (at least if the cops are called you can be the victim) and demand the right to be treated like a person….But Terri, I’ve told you before, Im’a “fuck this” kinda guy, it gets attention more effectively than “please treat me like a person.”…
    There’s always gonna be negative people out there, and you can’t force them to see or accept your choices….just avoid em
