Day 12: Staying Out of Others Misery

"Oftentimes, when people are miserable, they will want to make other people
miserable, too. But it never helps." Lemony Snicket, Horseradish ~ Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid

I live with five other people. Everyday at some point or other, I have to deal with someone who is caught in a moment (or more) of negativity. Everyday, I practice staying out of it. I am learning to offer love, support, and comfort without dropping into a pit of negativity myself. It isn't easy. I am glad that I still have a few more weeks to cultivate this habit of choosing positivity.
