Make up & Positivity.

Updated on February 4, 2016

Positive Polly & Negative Nancy

It isn't about simply staying positive and thinking happy thoughts. It isn't about staying purely negative either. Most of the time people who try to shun away any negativity are merely preventing themselves from healing altogether. Healing takes understanding and closure. You cannot heal a wound without cleaning it and baring some pain first. Only then can you bandage it and let it become part of you.

Now let me explain further about make up positivity. You can put it on all you like, but it will only hide the failure to realise that true contentment comes fom within. Just like the slap girls put on today... hiding the pale blotchy skin that lies beneath- if you don't let your skin breathe you will just get more spots and it will become a never ending spiral of covering up.


Recover or cover up?

I found this phrase quite fitting when I found the correlation between covering something up both physically and mentally.

Make up is something many people wear to either enhance their beauty or to hide their imperfections. This is quite a good example for the positivity people adopt in their attitude, in response to situations where they feel they need to have some control with how they learn from it. Positivity can also be like make up, it can be used to hide the refusal of understanding from any past experience. However, It can also be used to magnify your maturity, awareness and wisdom.


Stop focusing on external paths to find inner peace. No path you step upon outside will bring you any close to contentment inside.

So... which one should I be, Positive Polly or Negative Nancy?

You can't be either one to have a fullfilling life, instead, find a balance of both. Have both perspectives and only accumilate wisdom. If you limit your life to one perspective, one attitude, you immediately take away so many possibilities for yourself to reach your biggest wishes.


Embrace it. Your pain is but the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

You are made up of thousands of different experiences.

And if you think about it, there isn't really good or bad- there is just experience! All of which add to your wonderful insight about the world, about what comes next, all preparing you for the rest of your life. If you continually ignore different things that people say or do, imagine all the accumilated knowledge you could have embraced!

"Why should you care, what they think of you
When you're all alone, by yourself
Do you like you? Do you like you?"
