Assalamualaikum and a very good day dear readers.
Looking at the title of the entry, yeah, it sounds too cliche and boring. But wait, read it first and you shall not regret. InshaAllah ;)
Why people always talk about POSITIVE THINKING all the time?
What is so special about THINKING POSITIVELY?
Will POSITIVE MIND change anything?
The answer is an absolute YES!
Now I will tell you why.
I used to be a very sensitive girl (actually I still am, but I'm in my way to change ^_^ ). Thus, I got hurt over trifles nearly everyday. I used to feel terribly sad when:
-people don't reply my sms
-people don't answer my calls
-people don't talk to me as they used to
-people ignore my 'buzz' in YM/Skype/FB message
-people don't really listen to me
-people don't smile at me
-my parents raise their voice at me
-the teachers/lecturers don't have any eye contact with me while teaching
......and the list goes on and on.
You don't believe me? Well, you should because that is the truth. When such situations occur, I will start to think like this:
-people don't reply my sms because they are annoyed with me
-people don't answer my calls because they have found better friends
-people don't talk to me as they used to because they already get bored with me
-people ignore my 'buzz' in YM/Skype/FB message because I have been bugging them a lot!
-people don't really listen to me because they are not interested to listen to me anymore-people don't smile at me because they hate me
-my parents raise their voice at me because they don't love me-the teachers/lecturers don't have any eye contact with me while teaching because I am not their preferred student
Didn't that sound ridiculous? All these while, I never thought wisely why did they act as such? I mean I did have my own thoughts but in a very NEGATIVE way as you can read above which finally will only hurt me more. If only I think POSITIVELY, like this :
-people don't reply my sms because they are running out of credit
-people don't answer my calls because they are busy
-people don't talk to me as they used to because they have more important things to be settled
-people ignore my 'buzz' in YM/Skype/FB message because they didn't realize it. They only realize my buzz after I go offline
-people don't really listen to me because they have their own problems that need to be solved
-people don't smile at me because they have other things in mind. Maybe they don't even realize that I was actually there
-my parents raise their voice at me because I did something wrong. Plus, they were busy and tired. They always tolerate with me all these while what.
-the teachers/lecturers don't have any eye contact with me while teaching because they need to focus on those who need more attention. Hello, you can't always get all the attention.
See. How totally different the situation can be. I know, sometimes the real situation is not that positive BUT,at least it hurts you less if you think positively aite? And if the situation is really not negative, we won't feel guilty that we had a negative thought on our friends/lecturers/parents. Besides, as for muslims, our religion also asks us not to think negatively on others. Right?
I think that is all I can write for now. I may be not that good in arranging my words but I do hope I've helped you in changing your way of thinking. Yes, it is definitely not easy, but certainly worth trying. ;)
