See Clearly

Focusing on the positive does not mean ignoring the negative. It is unrealistic and detrimental to deny that negative things exist.

Positive focus is determined more by how you respond than by how you perceive. There is no positive value in refusing to see or acknowledge your problems. In fact, that could be very harmful.

A positive attitude is not achieved by turning a blind eye to the negative, but rather by responding to every situation in the most positive way possible.

See negative things for what they are, and then respond with positive action. Acknowledge and accept the problems, the difficulties, the shortcomings, the abuses, and then do something positive about them. Denial and evasion will do nothing to address your problems. Positive action will.

True! The way we respond actually determines if we see things positively or negatively. Thats well written (Y)...

Read 2 posts which seem to be inter-related. True, one should know negative points and make concerted effort to turn them into positive. Think positive without losing sight of negatives.

Next BD which is coming up shortly, I would like to spend it with my near & dear ones including friends.

I would rather know all than to have all as knowledge is always helpful.

Take care
