# 48 (2014) How To Be Positive
I am reading a lot of articles about how to be positive and re-jig your life when things aren’t going right. But it’s hard to do when you’re isolated for so many reasons and you face the reality that the one person you’ve hinged so much on, probably won’t be a part of that decision.
That’s when those plans that seemed like a positive challenge don’t seem as inviting. Because if you’re doing it alone how do you bounce ideas, rally round and brainstorm when things don’t go quite right? Being in a cycle of negative thought is hard to break out of.
It would be very easy to give up, close down and resign to the reality that life isn’t what you hoped it would be. When you’ve made as many bad decisions as me, you stop making them altogether and decide there’s no point.
Because whatever skills and achievements you have, they mean nothing without the will to go on.
And I don’t know how to change that.
