trying being positive

staying optimistic is very very hard especially with how people are and how the world is. one thing i can say though is, stay away from emotional vampires. and avoid people who are negative. if you don't, you might adapt that into your psyche and eventually be that not-so-optimistic kind'a person.

I've always heard that we adapt to the ways of the people that we hang around with. And,when those people are negative, it can't help but rub off on us. I tend to not want to hang around with people who talk negatively all the time. It can make you depressed! I want to hang around people that make me want to laugh! You always feel lifted up by these kind of people.
