Have you ever noticed the influences of negativity? Every so often, I hear some people swearing away. Some say that swear words are just words, that really they don’t have any significant impact compared to other words. However, try it sometime. If you’re mad, say “sugar” or “pampers”. Then, if you want to compare, say “f—” or “sh–“. The fact is, those latter words do raise the negative energy within a person. There are times when, after hearing a group of people just dropping the f-bomb away, it actually has an impact on my day. Those words ring in my head and it does alter my attitude.

This isn’t just confined to swearing. Negativity in general, when spewed out around others, will have a negative effect. Are you contributing to that today?
