Most days being positive comes easily to me. It has become second nature, putting on a smile and laughing when others are being negative.
Most days being positive isn’t something I even have to think about, I can generally find something positive in everything.
However there are days like today when being positive is much harder.
The hardest days of all are those where I am surrounded by people who just don’t think.
Some people just don’t get the severity of a situation and carry on as though they can do as they please when they please and there will be no consequences. They don’t worry so don’t understand that I might be extremely concerned.
There are others who have never been in the same situation and have no understanding that sometimes it is tactless to go on about spending hundreds of £s on christmas presents or trips abroad over New Year when others just can’t afford to live, let alone think about those things.
It is difficult enough having to struggle day by day trying to pay the bills. Never knowing if you can afford to spend money on food let alone any luxuries, but when someone who is fully aware of how things are, prattles on about how many hundreds of pounds to spend on presents from Boots this year or should they spend it elsewhere, it kind of feels like they are rubbing your nose in it that you have nothing.
However looking on the bright side, I may be feeling depressed today but I know that will pass and I will get back to being positive unlike some.
