It's not just things like Topix, it's the state of society today. How do YOU rise above the negativity we're confronted with daily? Serious answers only, please.

I am not even joking right now! I was wondering the exact same thing. Everyday I ask myself what am I still doing at my age in a town that is slowly crumbling to the ground? There are no morals or positivity. If you do something nice for someone they always believe there is something behind it. It's disgusting.

No one wants to take care of themselves, make a way for themselves, and kindness towards others? HA.

We can't do much about the negativity around us, but we can have complete control over how we react to it. I saw something today that said no matter how you feel about something you're still responsible for how you act.

This may sound bad in some way but when people around me are swimming in a sea of negativity I often just remember that I am 'above it' per say. That I am destined for better things than what is being shown to me. If that makes any sense...

I agree. That's why we are called loners. Everyone around us thinks we're so negative, and I don't know about you but I'm just trying to stay away from the negativity that surrounds me on a daily basis. That's my way of rising above it. When it's all said and done, I'm going to rise above all of it and be a better person.

I surround myself with people who are from Olive Hill but without the Olive Hill mentality haha! I know what you are saying, you just have to do the best you can FOR YOU. Sometimes it can be hard for me to stay silent though when the situation does call for a loud voice.

2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Ti 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Sound familiar?

To stop negativity it has to be an individual effort. If negativity is centered toward you, cut yourself away from the negativity and prove them wrong. We all have power in our own way, and we all can make a change. No one is perfect, but there is certain attainable goals we can set for ourselves.
