Wonderful Thinking

It Can Be That Easy

Each day using good thoughts and the power of positive thinking to our advantage

Then again some people feel they have the right to complain

If you open the door to let them get a few things off their chest

It's like a can of peanuts you can never have just one

After awhile they will go back to their old ways

Finding fault with everything and everyone

Repeating their old habits that give them and others nothing but pain

It feels like that green pepper that keeps on repeating

Soon integestion sets in

A got bad feeling about this

Instead of seeing so many good reasons to be and stay happy

They relive their gloom and doom attitude

More deadly than poison ivy

Not because they are better

Because they are comfortable with any result

No matter who they hurt or injure

Just like a car out of control

Sooner or later they will crash

Bringing down anyone who is with them

The consequences don't look nice

Even though many chances to change

They chose not to

So many opportunities and time to make amends

They either could not bother or it was beyond their control

People like this you give them helpful hints

They don't get it

Each time they waste your valuable time

Telling you they promise to change

Unfortunately you see the new results are the same as the old

A time bomb still ticking

I wonder a lot about peoples frame of mind

What they are really thinking before, during ,and after

Well sadden as I may be

I have to break free

They have their own life and almost like a whirlpool

If you get close enough you too will get sucked in

Then it's too late

You have also fallen to the same fate

This is so on target, it is scary. You have exactly captured the personality of "some people." I like your analogy of green pepper that keeps repeating.

Voted up and awesome.

I'm sharing this with my small group of followers. I admire your way with words and this poem produces perfect imagery to the reader.

I've had my share of these kind of people in my life. But not anymore. I 'cleaned out my closet' of energy-sucking, poor me, people. They will suck the very life out of you.

I love this. You have managed to express your feelings so well. Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting and sharing. Thanks.

RachaelOhalloran It took me awhile to write this because this is about someone I really care about. When you talk about family and close friends they are people that you have known your whole life. You feel obligated to help in any way. In the end you suffer and they keep living the way they want selfishly, thoughtless and reckless lives. I will not fall a victim to their sadness. It wipes me out both physically and mentally. I have to learn to stay away and realize some people either can't be helped or don't want to be helped. Both conditions seem unacceptable to me. I have to walk no run away. There is so many other things I want to do with my life and my energy. Spending time on so many good people in the world. That deserve my recognition and love, respect forever. I am glad you read my hub it means so much to me. vocalcoach There is a lot of pain when words tell the truth. I know some people will see the meaning behind each line. I wish it was different. I l always believe in the old saying if there is a will there is a way. Do I really want to spend all my time and effort trying to find a solution. Maybe my fellow hubbers could help me speed up the process and now it is not so personal and close the hub can expand and grow. I never count out the ability of so many wonderful people that have been through the same situation that they might have one more piece of the puzzle that fits. One step closer to helping others without hurting ourselves. Thank you both for reading and sharing. I find when I am around such people they make me blue and as much as I try to keep my imaginary force field up they some how some way make their way through. I guess we all have a soft spot for someone unfortunate and down on their life. Is it our built in chemistry wanting to help and make things better. Like a mother with her children. A lost puppy you want to take in and care for. Anyone who is in ill health we just want to see them get better. I am left with an empty feeling in my stomach. But I know of nothing more I can do. So I leave it up to you. Thank you.

Cybershelley I try my best to keep my circle of friends and family filled with positive and energetic people that help me develop and add to my life as hopefully I do to theirs. So we each benefit in so many ways. A win , win for everyone. No one gets hurt and we are all there for each other on an occasional low or down moment. Not an every hour or every day experience. I can't and won't live this way. It is not the life I envision or will allow to happen. There is to much good in the world to enjoy. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I feel my positive vibe just climb and a quick burst of energy fill my body.Thanks to you. Life is truly amazing and so many people we meet in life are incredible. I live for these moments.

Dream On, it seems that when we meet the kind of people you describe, our best decision to put distance between us and them, so we do not become like them. We owe it to ourselves to choose associations which uplift us. Thank you for the warning.

MsDora The tricky thing is we believe they can change. We are there for support time and time again. Doing what we can to help. Unfortunately some people want to live unhappy life and will do everything in their power to make it come true. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Always a pleasure to hear from you.

Interesting hub! I know I love being me so changing to what others expect of me will not be. You got me thinking of how people whom I live around feel I should change something I can't do.

DDE If your actions and decisions have an undesirable affect on the people around you then you might consider changing your ways. The same goes for friends who bring you down and aren"t a good influence. Thank you for reading and sharing,
