I’m Not Playing Today

Standard

In a time we desperately need to come together, I realize the difference each and everyone of us can play. It only takes one aggressive, angry person to ruin the day for the entire bunch. Even if you have the best intentions, negative tone sets the mood. It causes anxiety and a sense of dread and uneasiness for everyone around. I believe the opposite is true as well. A good attitude, kindness and positivity are contagious and can spread just as easily if we allow it to. Not only do we have to be very careful about who we spend time with, we also have to walk away from someone who is simply in a bad mood. Don’t become it, rise above it. I’ve always said, if you don’t like the rules of the game, just  don’t play.

    When I run across people in a bad mood I also try to remember to remind myself it is their mood, not mine. It usually has nothing to do with me and is something that happened previously. It allows me to separate and not take their mood on, especially for co- workers.

  2. I refuse to surround myself with negativity these days as I’ve suffered from depression and have no intention of going back. I can understand and am sympathetic to someone feeling sad or unhappy, but those who dwell on it and expect other people to put it all right for them? I keep away. If I’m in a bad mood, I take myself away, and Maggie gets an extra/longer walk. Sometimes I know I am better off left on my own, and think it’s unfair to pass on my moodiness.
