Negativity is easy.
It’s so easy to tear something down or to even fall down into a dark slump. And it’s safe. It’s safer to say something sucks, and those that like it are dumb for liking it. It guards you from embarrassment or shame. And in life, it’s so much easier to fall down and get into a bad headspace and let things tear you down and to just stay down and rot in your own negativity because
Positivity is hard.
It’s hard to stand back up and keep going when everything is weighing you down. The worst thing about life is that you have to fight to be happy. You have to work for it. It’s not easy. Being positive makes you vulnerable. People and things can tear you down so much easier. And some people aren’t willing to fight or they’re afraid to put themselves in that position where they can be hurt or torn down and have all that happiness they worked for stolen by something quickly.
But as someone who was down for so long, I can’t stress enough how amazing it feels to stand up. And no matter how heavy that load is that is weighing you down, once you’re on your feet either again or for the first time, it is so worth it.
And once you’re up, Positivity becomes so much easier, and when you’re knocked down, you may fall harder, but you’ll climb back up faster.
