I have written about areas of self-improvement we can all work on. We each have things we can work on and do better in. I would like to further discuss, “Maintaining a Good Attitude.”
Self-improvement is attained when you first acknowledge areas that you need to work on. I want to be honest and admit maintaining a good attitude in life is not always easy. To walk with a positive attitude constantly can be trying especially when you are facing difficult moments. Many will state, “Easier said than done;” and I will have to admit I can agree that this is true at times.
For me, I think it’s important that you don’t lie about how you feel about things you are facing in life but at the same time, we must keep a positive attitude. It is hard when you may hear, “Someone has it worse off than you do.” That may be true, but I find that statement to be very insensitive when you face very hard times in life. Most will say things until they face some difficult moment in their life.
I do not like when you compare someone in any way to someone else. This includes hardships in life. Every person may be walking through their own difficulties, and I believe we can be more sensitive when we become aware of what someone may be facing.
Maintaining a good attitude is truly a choice we make. Becoming negative, bitter, angry, etc. will only affect what you are facing even more. It is not about being fake about your feelings but recognizing that you can still maintain a good attitude in the midst of your circumstances. Expressing yourself honestly is important but it is also vital to make sure you are not allowing yourself to be changed in a negative way, making you something you never were.
I say this as I continue to work on this area in my life. Becoming more aware of how you are being impacted by life is vital to each of us. We must be honest about how we feel and what these things are doing to us as we face them. Conflicts, sickness/disease, loss, pain, rejection, and any unforeseen difficult circumstances are some things that occur that can impact us seriously. It’s in these moments we can make the choice to stay true to who we are and not be changed in a negative way.
Although, maintaining a good attitude is not always easy, we definitely can work on this in our lives. Any time we sense we are changing in a negative, these are the times to self-evaluate and work on improving yourself even if it takes one moment at a time.
Thank you for taking moments with me. As we continue to discuss on areas of self-improvement, let’s remain honest about the things we need to continue to work on. I would love to hear what area of improvement you are working on. Do you recognize you are always negative, or do you pay attention to when or if your heart is turning that way? Do you feel you can do better about your response to hard times? Are you someone who denies how you feel? Do you cover up (mask) and stay fake and act as though everything is ok, when it really isn’t? Are you aware when you are becoming bitter by your circumstances? We can all do better, but it starts with our ability to acknowledge we need to work on this area of our lives. Looking forward to hearing your story.

When you mentioned the mask, and how people put up suck a fake personality. It is so true. They think they are pleasing everyone in reality all they are doing is hurting and not showing their true self’s. People pleasing needs to stop and we need to teach being a good person not people pleasing.
You are so right people pleasing does not help anyone or anything. When you are going through things in life, being fake will only last but so long. Thank you for taking a moment to read and share your comments.
I agree,you can’t compare because everyone has it’s own way and difficulties. This was a lovely read and something valuable to know. Thank you for sharing!
Your support sincerely means a lot. I genuinely appreciate you reading and sharing your thoughts. You are right everyone handles difficulties in life in a variety of ways.
Thank you for writing this post and raising the topic of maintaining a good attitude and looking for areas of self-improvement. There is always work to be done, but trying to be positive will help change the outlook you have on life. It is important to be realistic and not cover up dificult sides just be pretend to be happy. My blog is pretty much all about self-improvement. I’m naturally quite positive, but there are many areas where I need to work on. Such as not assuming the victim role, but taking responsibility for my own freedom. Many aspects to be honest. Great post!
I sincerely appreciate you reading and sharing your thoughts. Being honest about what you are feeling and dealing with helps to ensure the ability to work on these areas in our lives. We all can grow and do better for sure.
You are right, a good attitude is a choice and being intentional can make all the difference in our days. This is such great reflection and power to help us live better days. Thank you for sharing.
It can be difficult to maintain a good attitude but we can work on it. Thank you so much reading and sharing your comments Lindsey.
I love when you said “Every person may be walking through their own difficulties, and I believe we can be more sensitive when we become aware of what someone may be facing”. So true. I’m currently going through a hard situation and I’m actually proud of myself and how I’ve been turning something negative into a positive. It’s difficult for sure, but I know this situation is only temporary so I’m trying to stay busy and positive in the mean time. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Maintaining a good attitude helps us in so many ways. I sincerely appreciate you taking a moment with me and sharing your story too. Sometimes we can be so quick to judge someone without knowing their story. I sure hope your difficulty will pass soon as you remain positive through it all.
