Do you know someone that just like to talk about bad news? No matter what you do or say that person will keep up talking and talking about bad things? I love to make people smile and I try my best to not communicate bad things to others. How about you?

Hey girl! Sounds like a lot of people around me. Lol, seems like people are always moaning about life, but had never given a thought as to what causes all of these unhappiness in the very first place. It's all about the MINDSET. I am frankly stupified as to how such a simple concept can be bypassed by so many people. There is something to the Law of Attraction after all. Being a happy go lucky sort of person myself, I will start to talk nonsense (be it jokes, lame ones, some cold riddles and so on) to divert the 'negative' vibes the other party is sending. if all fails, I would do some stupid actions and majority of the time, it works! Once the momentum gets going into the positive notes, it stays that way. Try it out =) By the way, where are you from?

That is a great idea. I do that also or I just attract their attention to something else and yes it works! I am originally from Brasil, moved to USA in 96, american citizen and now I live in France! And you?

I am really glad that it works out for you =) Hopefully your friends will come around to see that being positive is much better than being negative (it just drains away all your energy). It is really that simple to turn a frown into a smile, and I heard that it takes ::scratches head:: - Can't figure out why though. Hehe. I am from Singapore! Born and bred in Singapore. Lol. Although my dad was originally from Malaysia and my Mother's family was from China, I can't think of anywhere else but to call Singapore my home. It's amazing that you had lived in so many countries. ::Envious:: Heex, it must be really fun and exciting to keep shifting to so many countries to live in. Especially where the three countries have so diverse cultures and environment. Does it take time to adapt to the society of your current home in France? I heard that it can be a stiffing place to live in, if you don't know French at all. The French people there would look down on you and can't even be bother to open their mouths to talk to you. Is this true?

Hi Angelia, I just want to let you know that Jean is right! France is very nice and people here treat me with lots of respect even though I do not speak french well. Many of them speak english so telling that french people do not speak english is a lie. They smile to me in the street and I am always welcome, much better than many americans that I met. What I think is that does not matter the country that you are in you will have bad and good people, so depends of you! I am really friendly so people generally like me! And Jean is french and he is awesome guy!

Yes. I meet a lot of people like that, talking bad news on and on, especially those who like gossiping. The story was so intense and they sometimes made it up quite dramatically in order to build an enjoyable -- but not fun for me -- and long story... As for me, yes I am doing the same way like you. Talking about something good will give positive impact to our surroundings. That's based on LAW OF ATTRACTION I've ever studied. But, honest talk is what important...

Yes I agree with you. I just try to surround myself with happy people. That economizes my time. Thank you for your answer!
