What a tangled web is negativism

What a tangled web is negativism

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”—Mark Twain—

It’s good to be nice to everyone—but there are those who will counter your niceness with negativism, bitterness, or contention. In such cases, try this; keep on being nice, but don’t pay attention to smallness, it is beneath you. Shrug your shoulders and move on.

It’s easy to smile when you are moving on.
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
