Let’s Stop the Un-Diva-like Behavior

Not the first time…definitely won’t be the last time. But why, oh why, does it seem that there are some divas out there that enjoy finding fault in anything and everything others attempt to do?

We’ve all done it at some point in our lives, but it seems that we should get to a maturity point where we realize that another person’s successes will not and cannot cancel out ours.
There’s enough to go around for us all!
Self check time – if you’re constantly finding fault and pointing out what’s wrong with a person, situation, organization,etc but never bringing forth any positive solutions or ideas to make changes and willing to put in the effort and work to bring those ideas to fruition …. SIT DOWN, DIVA, SIT DOWN!
Typically people that are constantly putting others down, being catty, gossipy, the list could go on and on:
~are jealous or envious for whatever reason.
~insecure or threatened for whatever reason and lashing out as a defense mechanism
~small-minded and would like to see others stay in the little bubble they’ve kept themselves in for years because it’s comfortable and cozy
Let’s pledge to do a little better. Focus more on the positive and be more proactive with addressing (not just attacking or pointing out) the negative.  Pay someone a compliment. Celebrate the successes of others. Ask questions of some one’s that’s accomplished something you are currently working on. Offer a helping hand without expecting anything in return. The rewards we’ll reap from these actions will be priceless. Promise 🙂

Thank you for posting this. I think that for most of my 52 years I've always been a glass half full kind of gal. For whatever reasons (some with merit, and some not) I can feel myself slipping into negativity and unhappiness. I don't like it, but because I have never really had to "work" at being positive before, it isn't something that comes easily. But, as you stated, the rewards are boundless, so I'm just going to keep trying!
