You either:
Wake up and decide to be happy and spread happiness
You wait for circumstances to be in your favor to change your mood to a positive output mindset
So very true.

If it is neither good nor bad, then why are you calling it a problem?

Questions:

1) Are you happy and positive?
2) Do people like you?

I was just being honest. I thought honesty was a good thing. Perhaps, I was wrong. But being wrong is a bad thing. I don't know. Maybe you're right.

I am happy and positive, as for answering if people like me I can't speak for them as they have to be the ones who answer that I guess. I would like to think they do. Ever noticed though how you gravitate to someone with a smile on thier face and a warm greeting?

Hi Damian,

I just wanted to say that I don't know if feeling negative is good or bad. I feel it's natural to experience negativity from time to time. From my perspective, we're constantly changing, including our emotions.

I can say with certainty, however, is that your avatar put a smile on my face. What a grumpy kitty!

(Hopefully my response doesn't make you feel even more negative.)

Its excellent to be aware of your negativity. Stay with it, don't try to be positive in any way. folk don't want to stay with the ugly, they want the bright lights now, even though they lead a life that promotes that negativity. If you stay with it, look at it, understand it, not reacting, not interpretting, not translating. then it might reveal why its as it is and that might put a smile on your face. no need for positivity but understanding helps. also you might be physically unhealthy or some underlying condition thats promoting this feeling. allergies promote negativity.

I said what about my eyes?
“Keep them on the road”
I said what about my passion?
“Keep it burning”
I said what about my heart?
“Tell me what you hold inside it?”
I said pain and sorrow?
He said…
“Stay with it” .

Negative can be the catalyst for change, that's good. It's the way you're feeling, that's neither good nor bad but the way it is. If you feel negative you're aware of how you feel, that's good. How you perceive it is up to you, so if it's good or bad it's the choice you've made. If it makes you feel bad, that's bad. If feeling bad makes you want to change it, that's good. If you're confused then drop the whole good and bad thing, it makes Life easier and it brings awareness. That's good.

Hi Damian,

Negativity is not really synonymous with nor is it an aspect of discrimination.
It is a ‘power’ though.

Negativity is inertia, confusion, resistance, and fear; closed, circular self-referent in its dynamic and self-fulfilling in its result - paralysis.
As such it tends to stifle intuition, restrict possibility and negate opportunity.

It is an exclusive (separative) superiority or non-participation of ego in the progressive expansion of consciousness in the greater being.
Negativity clings to the familiar limited unsatisfying known vs. a willing self-surrender to the progressively emerging unknown.

As to whether it is 'bad' or 'good' for you... I couldn't say.

A negative feeling is good if you use it to push yourself away from it. If you dwell on it, then it's really not good.
