There is no doubt that so much negativity is there in the world around all of us.
But then, there is so much positivity and goodness also present around all of us.
In a seminar on world’s current situation, a speaker made a comment that about half a billion people in the world are at war right now. A woman stood up in the audience and asked “What about the rest of the seven billion people of the world? Obviously they are not at war. Why talk so much about the half billion negative people and not talk at all about the other seven billion who are at peace?”
Unfortunately, most people are not able to see the positivity and goodness in others.
Of course, negativity and terrorism should be our concern, but talking only about the negativity around us brings us down and makes us sad and pessimistic, while recognizing positivity and goodness in others around us will uplift our spirit and encourage us also to be more positive and optimistic.
Denounce negativity but at the same time, recognize and praise the positivity and goodness also.
