Misery loves company.

Maybe you've noticed that negativity travels in a pack looking to consume everything in its path?

Maybe something you haven't noticed is this; negativity is like dog shit. You can step in it, not notice, and take that shit all the way home. Before you know it, it's in the car, your carpet and your bedroom. And, just like negativity, everyone in the house is stuck with the shit you've brought into the house.

Police negativity. Police the shit out of it. You can fucking police everything in life. Take a good hard look at what adds value to your existence, and what subtracts from it. This is life, and business 101: If you're not ahead, or at least breaking even, you've got some shit to fix before you go under. You can only run at a deficit for so long until something breaks.

But, you know what's hard? Walking away. Not engaging. Misery & negativity love feedback. In your head, a certain comeback might sound vicious, the best thing you've ever thought of.

However, the best thing is silence. Silence helps recalibrate those things that really matter. Silence is the answer to every negative stimulus.

I hear people bang on all the time about “self-care” being important, and emphasise how critical it can be to your mental well being to splurge on fast food or blow money on a set of candles and a bath-bomb. Cool, so you feel better for that half an hour whilst you soak away and forget that your problems exist- but when you get out and dry off, guess what? That problem is still there...
