Try to find the Positive
Years ago, a friend of mine told me she bought a really nice house on the beach. I was genuinely happy for her, but before I could catch myself, I said, “it must be nice.” As soon as the words slipped out of my mouth, I realized how unsupportive and jealous I sounded. Although I was happy for her, I sounded like a hater. I honestly don’t know where that negativity came from. Sadly, that comment strained our relationship, and we haven’t been as tight since. Friend, work to find the positive as much as possible. Negative thoughts and ideas will cause you to lose friends.
