What form does negativity take?
What is a Negative Thought Process?
Anything undesirable or unfavourable is negativity. It takes different forms with varying vibes.
The parameters of these vibes are measured with reference to the individual. A part of it is radiated or shared with others, for instance, when you feel the tremors you are the epicentre of the emotion. So ultimately who decides whether the thought process is a wrap or a wreck?
A negative mindset is a dementor which hovers around to wring the wobbly part of the mind. It is luring and succeeds in accomplishing its mission. More the fear more will be the adherence to its compatible host.
Of course it’s humanly impossible to take everything with positivity but humanly it is possible to reach perfection with practice on thought processes and patterns.
Weaken the deprived thought processes
On facing a challenging situation our brain releases stress chemicals which are evaluated as negative. This chemical prepares us to take off the flight with a fight ignorant of the landing station. Sometimes the situation becomes too frothy with less fluidity and that’s when we feel pressurized and constrained. Of course, I do not mean to say that one should not respond to abuse or an attack but there is a strategy for this response. These villainous chemicals are experts in shutting down the brain to thought processes which involve logical thinking and reasoning power. And suppose you preconceive your life as a burden then the work of these stress giving chemicals becomes easier. It is responsible for igniting negative thoughts. There may be instances where we react extensively and not act.

Chewing the Cud
This life is small and inevitable of pains and struggles. Be prepared for undertones and darker shades of expectations to simply glide on the negative hurdles. Have an objective outlook on any situation and be careful to not overstate and amplify the thoughts. When your mind has preconceived notions it is easier to get entangled in negativity. Generally things aren’t bad as you think and close your eyes to recollect on the unearned blessings that came your way over the undeserved bad phases of your life. The count of the former will be greater!
Toughen up a bit to set right the creases which made you susceptible to negativity. The earlier you train yourself, the better you learn to deal with it.
You need to understand that our mind is very tricky, to actively think of something that we are trying to forget. It gathers the thoughts which we want to dismiss and is important to understand your essence of being on this planet and that you are not an accident but a life with purpose. Avoid ruminating on the ‘cud’ which cannot be digested and also do not take things too personally. As human beings we all make mistakes and if you are very confident on yourself do not allow others’ errors to be a patch on your graph of success. There is so much of action and enactment going on around you and when you focus on a simple yet precious blessing, such as the air we breathe in. This way successfully extricate negativity from your system.
Pick and choose over the thought proceess
Negativity consumes and corrodes an individual if not immune to it. When you begin to see only the so called ‘problems’, your mind is tuned to further investigate and pick on those.
Let me detail on a common example, why do some people have twinkling eyes when they gossip?
It is a definitely a passion and a pass time for them to discover something from tiny bits and pieces of happenings and then report it to others. This fetches them happiness to devote their time to go and find out what they wish to hear and not what actually has happened. It is indeed very difficult to train the mind to only good things because some feel that there no ‘happenings’ and this makes life boring.
People prefer to hear what they want to hear about others. Seldom those around have got the heart to appreciate to be proud of other’s achievements. If you have a friend or relative as such, you bet it, he or she is a gem!
Human nature generally is seen to compare and contrast and seldom to compliment. These are methods to pacify one to avoid the joy of sharing the fellowship with others.
What happens at the Ground Level?
When you tend to understand this mechanism it is much easier to wade your way through such hindrances. This will help you to take anything to heart and get heated up over the spilled broth. Remember that it takes a lot of dedication and commitment to prepare this bubbling thick and juicy broth and it is too easy for a stranger to spill it. Not all complaints and compliments are genuine. Do not take people for face value as there is a lot hidden within the deep chambers of their intention. Some are good in satirical comments, some in dodging, some in smirking, etc. It is good to observe all these expressions but never be blown away.
When you read about the beautiful nymphs stringing flowers in the beginning of the passage, your mind became pleasant reading it whether you admit or not. What if those nymphs were in rags and looked coarse with hoarse voice, still stringing flowers? Would you retain your gaze at them? You need to be happy because they are tired from working for so long to string those flowers carefully to beautify you!
