Negativity

Have you ever noticed how there are a lot of people in the blogosphere that don't have anything positive to say about anything?

Whether they are responding or commenting to a particular post of someone else's or they are posting something on their own blog, there is nothing positive in any of their
rhetoric. It's all negative.


It is kind of sad on a number of levels:

First, it would appear to me that these people essentially have no hope. No hope in our leaders, no hope in the future, no hope for themselves, nothing. None at all.

Secondly, the negativity that spews from their words and attitudes can often does spread to others. This negativity is like a virus that can infect virtually anyone.

Lastly, and there is no way to say this except to be blunt, it pisses people off. It makes other not want to be involved in any kind of discussion about anything whatsoever and if they do decide to get involved in a discussion they too, going back to that negativity spreads ideas, end up pissing
people off.

Honestly, I don't think these people really intend to be negative or set out to make others angry. It just comes that way naturally I guess.


However, I don't think that the old cliche about not saying anything if you don't have anything nice to say could apply in this situation. However, the thing is, we all know the world has its
problems. We all know the system isn't perfect. We know there are things that need to change. But to be reminded of whatever failings they have chosen to speak of on that particular
day, can get really old.

That was it.
