What is a positive attitude? What difference does it make if we have negative or positive perspective? Why do we have to care for it?
These questions have crossed many of us. in this article, we try to answer them all.
Negative and positive attitude in different people
There are criteria in each person’s life. People live by these criteria and codes, which we call attitude. They experience different things and gain a variety of perspectives. In some, they have a positive attitude and in others, negative.
We believe that people live by the experiences they had, and the more negative ones they experience, the more negative attitude they have. Then the same negative thoughts become their criteria in life. Therefore, it results in dissatisfaction in life.
This one appears for the same reason as a negative attitude: the experiences we had from the moment we were born.
Imagine a mother who looks after her child kindly, lovingly, feeds him in time, changes his clothes whenever it’s necessary, and kissed and hugged him many times a day. This kid has everything he needs: a standard life!
Will he have a positive attitude in his life?
Wouldn’t he think how joyful his life is?
Won’t he think how happy he is because his parents love him?
Now the opposite can happen to another kid. Imagine what his life will be like. Will he have a positive attitude? Never! All the other kids feel is the misery, cold world, and hateful people around him.
The same happens when you are a teenager or an adult.
Do others have to be kind to us, so positive attitude manifests in us?
We choose what attitude should we have. Sometimes the kid that was raised ideally will have low self-esteem in older ages. It will dissolve the positive perspective he had as a kid.
On the other hand, the other kid with no one to care for him may figure out he needs to improve himself in his older ages and become someone better.
How to have a positive attitude in ourselves?
All of us have an inner voice telling us things, whispering them in our ears. This voice has a direct relationship with our attitudes. So it depends on us to have a positive and confirmed voice or an annoying critical one.
We can change this voice inside of us whenever we want.
