Between The Lines

Posted on February 8, 2018

"Have a good day."

"How have you been?"

"Wow that's amazing."

All these may sound different to you depending on how you imagine it is being said. When we think of negative thoughts while speaking, even if the content of our words seem neutral or even positive, we subconsciously transmit this negative energies when we speak or perhaps in our body language. People are able to pick up on these minute signals and form different opinions about you, which may not turn out to be very good opinions. In turn, they might reciprocate on this perceived hostility or lack of amicability with some harsh words of their own. Fights could break out if one is not careful of how one handles the situation.

We can see the cause and effect clearly in this, and how we avoid such a conundrum is simple enough: think positively. When we think positively, we start to speak and act positively, and begin to give others some good vibes, which they would in turn reciprocate with their own kindness. This is not to say, of course, that a person in a bad mood would kill the mood of everyone he or she interacts with just by mere presence. On the contrary, even if there is just one person with a positive mindset, it is possible to shift the mood of the people around and make it better.

Hopefully, with this simple advice, one is able to help make the space around them a better place, even if it can't change the world.
