So many times in our life we try to change our close friends/families and almost 100% time we fail successfully. Did ever anyone can change other people forcefully? How can you handle a negative mate? Can you change the negative energy that surrounds him/her?
The simple answer is NO. You never can change others. The only person you can change is yourself. Yes, you can change the feelings about your mate, you can practice forgiveness. If you practice gratitude every day (that means to feel the feelings of gratitude for everything you have – good health, good spouse, friends, families, children, career……a beautiful sunny day or a chilly winter (think about the heat of Sahara)……for everything you have in your life), you will feel good about your negative friends.
Even a broken clock shows right time twice a day. Every person doesn’t matter how much negative energy s/he possesses, has some positive side also. Practicing gratitude will enable you to see those positive sides in every person.
