Negativity is a powerful thing. It has the power to destroy a person, and I guess that is why it has always been something that frightens me yet strangely fascinates me. Negativity is predominant in this world. And we see so many examples of it every day. Whether that is visual negativity and hate, such as terrorism. Or whether that is invisible negativity, such as depression. Negativity has to be dealt with in a certain way, because it is powerful, and it takes a lot of positivity to clear it up. I think as people we do not realise that our own negativity is often felt by others. We seem to think that we feel so negative, and that we are the only ones feeling this way. We seem to have it in our minds that negativity is abnormal, and nobody feels the same way we do. So this is a little idea, not only to strengthen your faith in positivity and a kind humanity. But to restore your faith in the fact that pain is not only an uncommon thing, but something that can be cured, by the beauty and kindness of others.
You see, negativity is absolutely everywhere. Sometimes you just have to take a moment to stop and look at the world. Take a moment to stop and look at our society, and you will see. You will see the negativity and once you see it, it can become the only thing you see. I have always been a huge supporter of acts of kindness. I feel like if we all tried our hardest to make a difference, if we all tried our hardest to add a bit of positivity to this world, it would start to shine more brightly.
I was watching the news this morning. And I saw something, and it warmed my heart. The news story was about the dreadful terrorist attacks in Brussels. I watched as I saw the images of lost ones, smoke rising from bombed buildings and children screaming for their lives. And I felt disgusted, just like any decent human being would. But then I saw something so beautiful. The picture changed, flowers were all over the ground, people lit candles and prayed for the lost ones. And a young Muslim man prayed with them. And those people, they stayed united. Those people, preached this idea that the only way to defeat this evil was to unite together. And it was truly such a beautiful little glimpse at society. It was one,sadly,that I do not see often.
And it inspired me to write this. The idea for ‘a corner of kindness’ has been brewing in my head for months. But after seeing the results of the dreadful attacks in Brussels, and having a very hard two weeks, with negativity being the dominant feeling for me. I figured that this idea was so important. And I had to do this now, because I could help somebody, and so could YOU.
I know that in life people have so many struggles, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, the list goes on. And I know, that one of the hardest things about dealing with these things is feeling like you have nobody to talk to. And one of my favorite things about blogging is the supportive community. So I thought why not combine the two together, to show you that I care, and people are here to help you.
So with that in mind, I would like you all to take this opportunity of ‘ the corner of kindness’. If you are going through something hard right now, it does not matter how serious. Please leave a comment down below, and I and this friendly blogging community with reply to your comments with suggestions, advice but most importantly support.
I am really hoping you will all help each other out in the comments, and also open up about your situation. I think it will really help raise the awareness that negativity is normal. But most importantly show you that you ARE NOT ALONE. So please have a chat in the comment section, I really think this can help us all and spread a little positivity and kindness, in a world where sadly, we do not see it often.
Thank you for reading.
