Starling Says: Negative to Positive

starling says

Hey everybody!

Welcome back to my blog πŸ™‚ Glad to have you here.

Today, I decided to start a new series called “Starling Says.” I will be talking about some “deep” topics, but I won’t go so deep into it so that the information won’t be overload. They are meant to be encouraging and perhaps discussion-y?

The topic I decided to start with is about negativity.

It was inspired by this video I found when I was scrolling through YouTube yesterday:

You should really give it a listen, it’s catchy and a little sad.

But Elise Ecklund (that YouTuber) said that she wanted to turn something negative into something positive and honestly, I think she succeeded. Really, that song is amazing.

You may have heard this many many times or this may be your first time hearing it but, there will always be people in life who’d like to bring you down and see you fail.

Why? I’m not too sure sometimes. They may be hurting inside as well. You never know.

But when they hurl negative comments at you, like in that video above, you should not let it get to you. The expected reaction (throwing hurtful comments back and getting mad) is exactly the response the person wants. It just encourages them to continue.

Don’t retaliate. Don’t react. Just walk away or ignore it. Imagine you have this imaginary shield around you that deflects negativity.

I have heard cases about negative comments leading people into depression which causes suicide and all that, and you definitely do not want to go down that path.

Instead, turn that negativity into positivity and make the best of it.

When someone hurls a terrible comment at you, smile and say something nice about them.

Write a story using those comments.

Do anything to make that negative things useless against you.

  1. 100% agreed!! πŸ’―πŸ’― There will always be negative people in this world but try not to let it get to you. They’re hurting so they spill that anger on someone else. Haha love the song. Colleen did a similar post before and it was awesome since most of them don’t know how to type. πŸ˜‚

  3. I’ve been very lucky to never get any mean comments; the worst I get is that I get spam comments. But I still totally agree with this!

  4. Oooh, I love Elise Ecklund and her songs!!!
    Usually when someone tries to offend me, I try to laugh it off (I personally don’t care what others think and don’t get offended easily.) The person who tried to get me angry usually ends up leaving me alone seeing that I’m not offended.
