People are unique creatures. Every human being is able to feel emotions and make choices. You can choose to ignore the negativity, as well as you can choose to succumb to negative emotions, to listen, to think of it 24/7, get depressed and eventually realize that your world is starting to break down… Do you feel overwhelmed by the negativity? Do you feel you are unable to shield yourself from negative thoughts? Let us deal with it.
It is the underlying cause of negativity around us. Unfortunately, people cannot be guided by our instincts anymore as animals do. These genetically hard-wired behaviors have already eroded over the years. Respectively, our nature became paradoxical. For example, none of us wants to be lonely but has to be at some point in his/her life. However, the pain of being alone can lead us to seek connection with the other people. We live in a permanent state of contradiction and continue to behave accordingly.
