Accentuate the Negative, Make that the Positive
At lunch today with Steph, a/k/a KitchenKM we got to talking and insecurities came up. I thought a lot about what creates insecurities and I realized that it is so easy to get bogged down by the negative things tossed your way, that sometimes the positive gets squashed down to oblivion. Why do people do that to themselves? I know I am guilty of it. Sometimes it seems easier to recall the bad that has been flung at me, that the good becomes increasingly nonexistent. I can’t understand why it is so easy to remember the bad over the good. Negative reviews, opinions, feedback are recalled with a crystal clear memory; the good or positive compliments received get sent out into the ether to be forgotten. It is something I hope to stop doing, now that I have given it some thought. Accentuate the positive!
