…why is it that we obsess with negativity more than positivity?

Being good is boring but turning bad into good will always remain the greatest challenge of our life! We are fascinated by evil, by negativity! Look at literature, the most unforgettable characters are those that personified evil – Macbeth, Heathcliff, Ebenezer.. Perhaps we remember them because in the end they were redeemed…Maybe.. I tend to think that dwelling on and thinking of and fearing  the negative just contributes to its power..

Negativity’s main component is anger i reckon.. and with that said, i leave you with a beautiful and very accurate ‘Quote of the day’ by Clarendon:

– Anger is the most impotent of passions. It effects nothing it goes about, and hurts the one who is possessed by it more than the one against whom it is directed.
