Negativity is an addiction

“Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form … you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul.”
John O’Donahue

Negativity is an addiction; it is. It lingers and festers and grows like weeds. It overcomes us like a dark and stormy cloudy sky, moving in and shadowing our being, slowly raining down and extinguishing the light within our soul. When we focus on the negative, we breed negative. When we only allow negative thoughts to hinder our process, we begin to need it, feed it and crave it. Like the smothering effects of a dense and damp blanket, this negativity will take over the entire positive, like oxygen, from your body.

Your body craves the positive, just as it does oxygen.

Your light is your eternal flame, your light is your path, and your light is what attracts positive to you. Please, please don’t allow the bleak, foreboding shadow to hover over you like the stormy clouds on cartoons. Don’t give it the nourishment needed to sustain a negative life. For every negative action that happens in your life, focus on one positive thing. Try to counter the negativity. Every negative thought, thank yourself for something wonderful in your life.

You need too, it’s so needed in your life, and you’re worth doing it for. Start telling the negativity to pull back, move away. Start telling yourself you’re worth more; because eventually, not only will you drown in the shadow, but you will bring others with you.
