Let Me Ask You A Question – 8/9/17


This morning I posted about how I became a negative person while working retail.  Let me ask you a question:

Are you a positive person or a negative person?  If you are negative, does it bother you to be so?

      • I generally am. I’ve got it pretty good. Do I have everything I want? Of course not. But I have more than I need. All are healthy, I work, money isn’t tight. In terms of humanity, we’re blessed. Of course I have sad times, rough times, even dark times…and even times where I’m whoa-is-me. But I’m positive a great majority of the time.


  1. I try to be a positive person because so many negative things happen to me that I have to stay positive or lose my mind. Besides, what good does it do to be negative. Even with a black eye from cataract surgery because my eye hemorrhaged, I’m still positive and ready to get the other eye done.

  2. I think I’m more to the positive side, mostly, but I can do negative pretty well too when the situation really goes in the toilet. So, I guess I try to balance somewhere between Irrational Exuberance (thank you Mr. Greenspan) and catastrophic imagining.

    • At one point in life I find myself trying to help everybody. What I quickly realized is that negative people were energy vampires. They simply take take take and I would give give give. I stopped that!


  3. I worked in a supermarket and then in customer service and I wouldn’t say it made me negative but it did make me sarcastic, impatient and easily annoyed. Usually I am positive even if my blog rants do not seem to be. I am not a Debbie Downer. I try to use humor to get through the day.

    • I can be the same way. I have negative tendencies that I have to constantly correcting my mind. I have a streak of inpatients inside of me that I have to work diligently to keep in check


    • It isn’t easy to change. It took me over a year to exercise out all the negative demons in my mind. But I was able to make changes. I still have some of those negative tendencies and I’m still working on them.

      • Trying not to sound like a broken record, my moods depend on my bipolar. It is rare for me to work through them without them bringing me down and wishing the world would end. My current antidepressant helps some, but then I also have to deal with the mania. I would much rather be manic than depressed, but not sure how much longer she will let me go this way without upping the mood stabilizer or lowering the antidepressant. The antidepressant also helps me sleep. First one in all the years I have been taking meds. Sleep meds haven’t worked well.


  4. I have worked really hard to be a positive person. My wife and I have gone through a lot with our older children and have tried to remain positive. Thank God our youngest is such a joy to be around. Positive thoughts breed positive thoughts and negative thoughts drag you into the abyss of negativity.
