There is so much in the world that can pull us down these days for sure. No way to get around that. It exists. Yet, if you “allow” that negativity to “sink” your attitude and bring you down you negate the good that you can bring into your space in this world.
I am not saying that you walk around with your head in the clouds. In fact, true compassion actually brings you more in touch with the sadness, pain, etc. that is there. But, when you choose to not attach to that sadness you are bringing light into that darkness. You can be that positive force for good in that way. Why not be that? Why not allow yourself to feel that pain but NOT let it become who you are? That is a very powerful thing indeed. It is Love. It is Divine….
