Positive people are lighthouses in the hurricane that life often is. We’re drawn to them, and they show us just how good things can be if we just keep going a little farther.
They’re easy to love, and, possibly, to spend a lifetime with. Become a lighthouse for your partner, and they’ll want to stay close.
Anyone can become more positive—even the worst of pessimists. You merely have to be open to change.
A positive outlook best begins by believing in yourself, and in your relationship with your partner. Focus on the fact that you both deserve one another’s love and support. Focus on what you love about yourself, your partner, and your relationship. Dwell on these things. Write them down. Wrap them around your very being like a comfortable blanket.
Next, take the time to identify the negative feelings you have for your partner, and address them with constructive conversation—and a little humor, of course. Negative feelings help no one, and holding on to them, consciously or subconsciously, is harmful to the health of your relationship.
Once you begin to become aware of, and drop, these negative feelings, your positivity will thrive. Once it does, you’ll go past gratefulness and move on to joy—joy and the belief that your relationship is inherently good.
Your partner will notice.
Make the choice to be positive, and revel in the mutual, long-term happiness that will come with it.
