One thing I’ve been trying really hard to do was not be so negative about other people. I am very sensitive and my feelings are easily hurt, so it’s easy for me to see the wrong in others when I am hurt.
I really want to be the type of person that only sees the good in others, and I believe this is something I have to train my brain to do.
A little trick I’ve been practising that I hope helps, both with my currently dwindling friendships, and in making more positive new friendships.
1. Whenever I realize I am thinking poorly of somebody, I force myself to also think about something positive about that person.
2. Whenever I catch myself thinking poorly of somebody, I force myself to think about something about myself that I could improve on.
