Great Ways I Have Learned To Maintain A Positive Attitude

Great ways I have learned to maintain a positive attitude

Whenever I face challenges that threaten to bring me down, I find solace in practicing Buddhism, reading quotes, listening to motivational speeches, and by surrounding myself with family and friends.

I have been practicing Nichiren Buddhism for six years. This Buddhism is based on the original teachings of the Buddha, which include: prayer and chanting.  By engaging in such activities on a regular basis, I feel a greater sense of clarity and happiness in my life, which helps to keep my mind in a good place.

Also, I like to read inspirational quotes in order to stay positive. I peruse my social media feeds looking for them. Reading such words make me feel as if I can get through any obstacle that might come my way.

Confessions Of A Dating Disaster

A long time ago, I ended up dating a friend, and it turned out to be a disaster.

The relationship was filled with arguments because we viewed the relationship very differently. He wanted me to give up on my dreams and aspirations, and just help him get to where he wanted to go in life.  I wanted us to help nourish each others dreams so that we could both get to where we wanted to be in our lives.

After ruminating about his point of view, I had wondered if I was indeed not dating my friend of many years, after all. Because my friend would have known that I wouldn’t agree to give up on my dreams, and only support whatever it was he wanted to do, when he knew how ambitious I am.

Grow Up And Be An Adult

“I envy your ability to do what you want, and not have people constantly on your ass,” a man-child, who is in his late twenties, once said to me.

In response I told him, “I give no one that much power over my life. It’s unfortunate that you do. When the course of your life is based on the opinions of your family and friends, so as long as that’s the case, you will always be considered a child who is caught in a man’s body.”

Defining ‘Just Dating’ vs. ‘In A Relationship’

Recently, one of my friends called me, and was pretty upset because a guy whom she thought she was “in a relationship” with for close to a year, stated that they were “just dating.”

My friend’s reasons for believing that she was in a relationship with this guy were the following: They had discussed having a future together, and made plans. They often spent nights at each others apartments. They had sex on a regular basis.  Some of her things were kept at his place.  He had his own toothbrush in the medicine cabinet at her house. They were very affectionate with one another in public. They had gone apartment hunting together, and they had met each others friends and family. Not only that, but they both agreed on not seeing other people.
