I mentioned in my post this past Saturday that one of the crucial ways I set myself up for being a successful person is a ‘no-negative-crap’ mindset. It’s one that took me quite a while to really conquer, but two of my closest (very no-nonsense) friends were the ones that instilled it in me one afternoon after they both agreed that I had been wallowing around in self-pity for too long. I remember thinking during that conversation: Why do I hold on to complete nonsense for no reason whatsoever? Why do I insist on dwelling on things that only make me sad? When they told me that it seemed as if I liked torturing myself with these negative thoughts, I had this epiphany.
