I've been noticing lately that when someone has tried to upset me with their words, I've had a tendency to grab hold of their negativity. Once I opened up to my true state of mind as to what was actually taking place when I grabbed on, I realized I can let such thoughts go, and better yet, don't grab hold of such thoughts in the first place. There are actual times now, when someone tries to pass on their negativity to me that I actually start laughing inside, thinking . . . oh what a poor soul.
