How To Keep A Positive Attitude When Your Life Seems Upside Down

Updated on April 10, 2011

How to keep a positive attitude when your life seems upside down seems like the impossible doesn't it ?

Having a positive attitude when times are tough in your life is really not hard to do if you put your mind to it. I know there are so many people in the world with one kind of a problem or more than one problem. Having this in your life and dealing with many issues can really put you in a negative mood. How can anyone be positive in their life with things always going wrong is something that each of us must find out.

Things That May Help You Stay Positive

There are a few things to help you get in and stay in a Positive frame of mind. What I have found out in my years here on earth is that if you have a positive attitude no matter what type of problem of issue you may have in your life, having a positive attitude will indeed ease out some of the plain that goes along with your problem.

What needs to be done is that we must have this attitude in order to help us work out the problem or issue we are experiencing in our life.

If we walk around down in the dumps and thinking with negativity in our lives. Any problems you may have, you will continue to have, because of not thinking positive and trying to work your problems out. Being negative will not help one bit in solving any issues or problems life throws your way.

Keeping That Positive Attitude When Times Are Tough

Positive thoughts have helped many people, including myself resolve many issues and problems our lives seems to have. There nothing better than thinking Positive everyday our lives, but I know some may not be able to think with positivity in their lives do to some many things just going wrong for them. I know it is easier said than done, but I can say that thinking with a positive attitude help me overcome many things recently in my life, including surrendering to my alcohol addiction and now living a life of sobriety. I know for a fact that if I didn't think positive, sobriety would never be in my life as I speak.

I know it is hard for many of us to think or even try to think positive, but you must in order for thing s to work out in your lives. Negativity will get you no where in life and thinking that way will bring you even more down than you are at that time.

The power of the mind is a wonderful thing and we, and I mean all of us have the capability to have our minds react in anyway we choose, including thinking positive. we have to try to think of happy things in our lives and live life to the fullest, because as we know we only have one life, so we better make the best of it.

so when you are down and out and feeling if you life is turning upside down, think of things that you enjoy, like maybe your favorite place to visit or you favorite thing to do.  Maybe walking on the beach listening to the surf crashing in might help you relax because I know that works for me.

Maybe listen to some of your favorite songs to help you relax and unwind.  do anything that makes you happy and relaxes you.  Life is too short to let your problems get the best of you. Sit down and think of ways to overcome those problems and get your life back on track to a happy and fulfilling life again.

      Sometimes life takes us by surprise and suddenly our world spirals down, we cant see what is ahead of us and we panic, we feel frustrated, we cry, we fear, but we all must know that there is always a plan, a purpose that God/the Universe has prepared for each of us. No matter how dark our present might look there is a bright light fill with joy, and happiness ahead of us. We dont have to see the end of the stairs, we only have to take the first step.

      Nika- Thank you for reading this and I think I would just ask he/she if you did something wrong and why are they being so distant to you. Just be nice and maybe they will open up and tell you the main reason for not paying attention to you anymore. They will come back in time.

      I'm twelve and I put this: "how to be happy when your world spirals down" randomly into Google. So...what do you do with a "friend" that has been the most understanding friend for a lifetime and just suddenly...breaks off? How can you stay positive when she just marches right on by without talking to you?
