Stop being so negative.

Since IKA (I Kick Ass), I have decided that being negative is a part of not kicking ass and being a lame-o.

Being negative about stuff that actually sucks and actually affects you and your feelings is one thing. But being negative about something that you could easily just avoid or turn off is another.

I've been thinking a lot about being judgmental. Weighing the pros and cons of being judgmental. Only cons I could think of was closing yourself off to people. Well closing yourself off to people that suck is a normal sane response to life. Either make life better or just disappear.

I hope I make my friends lives better. I try really hard.

While thinking about negativity and trying not to be I thought about the things I'm always negative about. I am always negative about The Eagles. I am negative about people treating others badly. I'm negative about people treating me badly. I'm negative about selfishness.

I got called out recently because I have been known to go to a concert and have someone light up a joint near me...and I'll go "GROSS..THAT SMELLS GROSS" and I'll walk away. I also probably be very friendly to that person. Do you know why? That person is impeding on my enjoyment of the situation. I try my best to walk softly and not impede on others enjoyment of any situation. I understand that smoking marijuana at a concert is not a big deal to most people....I started falling asleep...maybe I'll elaborate later.

You know...for a long time I struggled with my short fuse. It wasn't that I'd go into rages, but it wouldn't take much to get me irritated and I'd go into these worrying fits where I'd be so stressed and worried. Anyway, what finally changed was one simple thing: I stopped wasting emotion on things that were out of my control. If it's out of my control, there's no use getting mad about it. Ever since I remapped my brain to think about things from that perspective...I've been loads more passive. Just a tip if you find yourself having the same problem :)
