The Importance of Having a Positive Perspective on Life


Jaelee Calk, Staff Writer

When people think about life, some may see it as good or bad, but a lot of people tend to focus on the negative. Having a few negative aspects in your life does not mean it should become your perception of it. It’s always good to focus on the positive, and can really improve mental health. When bad things happen in your life, in the end, it’ll all be okay. Maybe something will come crashing down again, and you may start to feel low, but there’s every opportunity to get better. The only way to go is forward, so you should never dwell on the past, past events, or past mistakes. If you feed off of negativity, there will only be room for that, until it slowly consumes you, which is why you should never put yourself in that situation, and use your low times as a way to grow and improve in life. Things can only get better, if there are bad things happening, there’s always a way out of it, you just have to try. There is no point hiding in the darkness when you can just be in the light, and I’ll tell you that happiness is much more addicting than sadness. It’s always good to look on the bright side and focus on the positive things, because when you do, you’ll notice that things will start to get better. You’ll notice you’re blossoming into the best version of yourself, and that’s something to aim for.
