Working At Being Positive

I work to be a positive person but I do have my moments. Taking an anti-depressant has helped me as of late. Some folks strive to be real but it can be difficult because there unrealistic expectations placed upon many of us. Being a Debbie Downer is easy but sometimes its very unattractive. You do the best you can and deal with the negative as it comes and hope you can keep a smile on your face.

  1. I’m in good company then, Tony. I do have to justify in the most scientific way to some friends why I need to take anti-depressant and anti-anxiety pills every day for at least 6 months. And I have accepted that sometimes, no matter how hard we try Sadness has more influence than Joy. We are being ourselves. Much love and hugs.

  2. Being positive and upbeat isn’t always easy, but one thing I have learned is that if I take a minute to smile at somebody and say “hey, how are you doing today?”, it makes my day a few points brighter. Not sure why, but for me it works. Hugs!
