We all have friends or know people who are negative. Sometimes they seem to be attracted to us, like a magnet. It’s hard to work on your own positive attitude when you feel surrounded by these types of people. The best thing to do is start limiting your time around them. This can be difficult if it’s a close friend or family member.

But it is always our own responsibility to maintain healthy boundaries to protect ourselves against the epidemic of fear and negativity that seems to be going on in the world.

And who knows, maybe your holding on to your inner strength and light will inspire others to do the same.
