2 Negatives Don’t Equal a Positive…Thought for the Day…

Seems like every day is a struggle between dealing with negativity & living my life with forgiveness, mercy, and love. Because honestly….deep down all I want to do when I’m around a negative person is say, “Suck it up buttercup! Life doesn’t owe you squat! You’ve had a great life even if you refuse to see any of the good & choose to dwell on the bad!” And yes…I know that is not very Christian of me. But when people allow a couple of bad things to rule their entire life and choose to use it as a sympathy card every chance they get….it drives me crazy!! But at the same time I have to ask myself, “What would Jesus Do?” Pretty sure He would handle it much better than me. I’ve tried being the positive influence but it usually backfires & I just end up angry. I’ve tried avoiding & then I feel bad. I’ve prayed….but I’m quite certain it isn’t often enough. So what do I do? I forgive and give it to God. Because the only thing that I’m completely positive about is that it’s not possible for me to soften a hard heart but God can do anything.
