How to Stay "Unbothered" Around Negative People
The world is filled with two types of people: negative thinking and positive thinking. Negative thinking people are around every corner of the world looking forward to ruining your day. These pessimistic people derive satisfaction from indulging an optimistic person in negative thoughts. Therefore, it is always advisable to stay unaffected by the words of these pessimists. Here are a few ways to help you out. Often, negative–minded people will come to you first when you are in a turbid situation. They go and make all the possible negative comments to put the fear into you. They derive satisfaction out of this. Therefore, please do not take their words into your head. Instead, appear polite to them and make them feel that the situation does not move you. However, if their words can move even once, this puts you on the path of negativity and depression. Therefore, do not lose your decision-making capabilities. Taking things personally is a major mistake. Negative people always do things deliberately to make you upset. In reality, they are unhappy in their lives; therefore, they see your life in the same way as theirs. The best way to deal with these people is not to pay any attention to their comments. Just let them speak, and you put your ear to some other task. Another way to deal with negative people and remain unaffected by them is to do them an equal amount of good for all the negative things they do for you. Doing this will not only make them jealous, but you will also feel satisfied for the good you have done to some people. At least, you can write some amount of good you have done on your list every day. Moreover, your good may make them positive people someday. Confront them and tell them that their negative thoughts and comments make people more depressed in times of negativity. They may already know this about themselves but may not have heard others tell them. Therefore, confronting them will shake their confidence and make them rethink their attitude. In addition, demonstrating their attitude and letting them know how mean they are may make them change their attitude a little. Over and above, if you are optimistic, it is not advisable to stay away from pessimistic people but to remain unaffected by the doings or words of pessimistic people. This will show the real optimism in you.
When Anger is Mismanaged...
One out of five Americans has an anger management problem, but you are able to control this issue. Anger is an instinctive human emotion and is nature's way of empowering us to "ward off" our perception of an attack or threat to our welfare. The trouble isn't anger itself, but it is the mismanagement of your anger that is causing you anguish. Mismanaging your anger and rage is a huge cause of conflict in our personal and professional relationships. You need to tell yourself you are able to control you anger in certain situations and with certain individuals. Tell yourself no individual or event upsets my mind, it's only my inability to tolerate them which makes me irritated. So with a high state of tolerance no individual or adverse situation will irritate me as I have the power to change myself! I am a positive individual unaffected by the negative thoughts of other people. I am a powerful individual unaffected by the negative words and attitudes of other people.
Negative thinking is a bad habit that I choose to stop.
I now choose to create thoughts that bring me happiness and peace of mind.
I fill my mind with beautiful and beneficial thoughts.
I have a strong mind and I'm not affected by the negative views of other people.
THE NIGHT THAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER
Sadness - an overbearing feeling of unhappiness. You know it’s that lump in your throat you feel before warm rivers of water run down your cheeks. Sadness is an achy heart. It’s a horrible feeling that makes you hurt all over. It’s like a bad thunderstorm going on inside your mind and every time the lightning strikes it strikes you right in the heart and makes you cry. It’s a feeling that even a cupcake won’t make feel better. That dark and gloomy feeling was the feeling I felt the night that changed my LIFE forever.... I swear my heart was pounding a million beats per minute. I tried to stay calm and as low as I could so they wouldn’t see me. We had fallen asleep in the backseat of the car playing campout. There were flashing lights everywhere, lots of red and blue lights but it definitely wasn’t the 4th of July. All I could hear was doors being slammed and guns being cocked. The sound of a gun being cocked instantly sent a paralyzing fear all over me. Nothing ever good happened when I heard that noise on the block. I kept asking myself, “What is going on? Why are the cops here? What did Mama do?” There were cops swarming everywhere. Two cops jumped out their car and ran up on the front porch. One of them banged on the door while the other officer stood there with his gun pointing straight at the door. BOOM BOOM BOOM..........”come on out with your hands up!” Kam and Russ, y’all wake up! Something bad is about to happen to Mama. Wake up now!!! We need to run and tell Big Mama that something horrible is happening. I was afraid to open the car door because I knew as soon as the cops would have seen us, they would have taken us straight to Child Protective Services and I just didn’t feel like going through all that! Before we could open the door to the car and get out, Mama came out with her hands up. She dropped to her knees and began to cry. I had never seen Mama so sad in my whole 8 years of living. They quickly cuffed her and put her in the police car. I didn’t see my Mama for another 5 years after that heartbreaking night. We finally got out the car and ran up the street to Big Mama’s house. All three of us were screaming and hollering about the police taking Mama to jail. Big Mama hugged us and that alone made us feel safe. I asked Big Mama why the police locked Mama up? She said, “Sometimes whatever the Good Lord needs to teach us comes in ways we don’t understand. Your Mama is my baby girl and I’d do anything for her to be here right now. But the Good Lord above had another plan for her and whether it seems fair to us or not, it doesn’t matter. Sometimes life isn’t fair. It’s a hard lesson for folks to learn and most people don’t have to learn it this young. Little Derrick your Mama is gonna be alright and so will you, your brother and your sister.” When my Mama got locked up it had a horrible effect on me. It was a really sad time in my life. It honestly broke me because I love my Mama so much and I just broke down when they took her away. Now I feel like I’m the care taker at 8 years old for me, my brother, and sister. Children with Parents in Prison · Many young kids who grew up surrounded by violence and poverty end up making similar mistakes · 25% of African American children will have a parent incarcerated at some point raising the risk of them entering the system themselves. · We can help stop the cycle of kids entering the system before it starts just by trying to understand where their anger, rage, and aggression is rooted. · If we can show our at risk youth that there’s another way and that they don’t have to choose the streets, then we have a chance of preserving their future. We can’t control who our parents are going to be and how they will treat us but we can control how we respond to the unpleasantries that sometimes happen in LIFE. Which road will Little Derrick take in life? Are we doing what we can to understand and emotionally support children whose parents have been incarcerated? If you know any children who live in untraditional home settings, please don’t judge them because of their circumstances. They just want to be loved, understood, and encouraged. Please love and share this short read. What are your thoughts on emotionally supporting children with these disparities? Please leave me a comment down below or at KTTEEV.COM.

Who knows, you just might meet a Little Derrick somewhere along Life’s way. “People Don’t Care How Much You Know, Until They Know How Much You Care.” Until Next Time, Live, Laugh, & Learn With Mrs. Wright
