How do I help myself become a more positive and inspirational person?!?
I'm very cynical and sarcastic and want to change. Some of my friends thinks I'm negative and bring them down. In a way, I am more mature than many of my friends and instead of an obsession with Justin Bieber it's politics. I complain when I think something can be changed but ppl don't see the brightness to that and just hear me complaining. I feel that if we ignore the wholes in the school system they will never be fixed.. It's gotten to the point that when people tell me I should be a lawyer I think to my self I can't go near law I'd end up being a cynical 40- year old lawyer getting upset when the wrong person walks or wtvr.. I have always been this way, when I was younger it was cute, now I'm a teen and it's to be expected that I'm sarcastic, but I don't want this to be me forever. I don't care about my friends so much, they come and go, however I know this is really about me and my journey. How can I better myself and be more positive?! .....I have hung inspiration quotes on my wall and have them emailed to me everyday.....so any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
Answer on How do I help myself become a more positive and inspirational person?!?
You seem to be on your way to change already because you do want to change. Though, I don't really think that it's wrong to be who you are. I hope you accept yourself and love yourself. Other than that, try to control what you say to people and somehow try to control your thoughts. It might sound impossible, however it is possible.
As for me, it's also not easy to stay positive when there's so much of opposite going on... Nonetheless, I try to count my blessings whenever I feel down, try to watch and read news less (if possible); whenever someone around starts complaining, I try to ignore it somehow.
I also visit givesmehope.com and all the other fun links they have there. It cheers me up. Oh, and my pets help to be somewhat more positive.
Never give up and good luck.
