It isn't always easy. Sometimes being positive is something that you have to remind yourself to do. I have been told that there are times in life when you want to yell and scream at people, but the best thing to do is walk away- easier said than done right? I am one of those people where, I am only able to argue with certain people. There are some people who are very difficult to argue with because that person might really be good at it.
There comes a time when not arguing is the hardest thing to do. Kind of like when attitudes or little "things" build up day after day until one day you just blow up. Sometimes that person really deserves to be "blown up" on, but sometimes the damage that is done to the relationship and yourself isn't worth it. I have learned that over time.
I won't lie, I blow up on people and let things get to me. I do my very best to just believe in myself and try to overcome those feelings of hate, dissatisfaction, etc. Everyday you have to remind yourself. That is what I am doing- day by day, minute by minute, second by second....
There is my bit for today :)
