Hello people! Tell me something about yourself that you may view as not so positive and allow your dear OP to change your way of thinking by putting a truly positive spin on said trait.

EDIT: it may take me a while but I promise to get around to spinning positively for each and every one of you awesome people!

I just want to know where the line between positivity and unhealthy advice lies.

An atheist, because he stopped believing in himself.

The only people who say this are some of the dickbag guys I work with, and I take absolute pride and pleasure in pulling them up on their scummery and making them squirm trying to back out of it. Often they'll say it exactly as "lads' chat" or a "passing comment" but I'm sick of that crap. The only way to whittle it out of society (even though these types are a dying breed, I hope!) is to bring it to their attention how unbelievably backward and fucked up their immediate thoight process is. The same with racism.

Not enough cawwwfeee!

If they were fronting some sort of sordid ring together then that'd be the absolute worst. Especially if Mr Rogers started it way back when and passed down the torch to them...

You're stuck in a place with people your age and in your vicinity whose parents have decided where they're to be educated; these aren't necessarily the people you'll always have to have in your life. You'll meet people from all walks of life later on. Stay strong, be true to yourself and kind to others. Don't feel pressured into making concrete life choices right now because you'll learn through both error and success throughout your whole life.

"Two lesbians. Sisters, probably. I'm just watching."

Edit: sheesh, it's a quote from The Office. Don't get too offended.

It sounds like you’re trying to insult me

Not at all. I see a lot of self-deprecating sadness and negativity here on reddit and I just want people to acknowledge what makes them positively awesome.

Kate Beckinsale, Felicity Jones, Evangeline Lilly, Billie Piper.

Any of those will do.

I try to put others before me in terms of their happiness, and while it does make me feel good to help other people, sometimes I forget to take care of myself.

For the things I like:

People

My pets

Foods

Drinks

Movies

Music

Books

Sunsets/sunrises

My hobbies

When I was on crutches and somebody whose bag was clearly taking up a seat on a packed tram/train, I ended up just sitting right on it. If the person doesn't want to see me, then I don't want to see their bag. Inanimate objects and rude selfish people can deal with that!

My roommate was on crutches a few months ago and no one would ever stand up for her! It was so awful.

That's woeful behaviour from people, I really don't get it. I think I got offered a seat a total of three times during months of crutched-up commuting. My favourite time was once when a really nice lady got up and offered me her seat, but before she was even standing up some rude business dude had sidled straight into and stolen the seat. without acknowledging anyone around him. People can be the worst, but that lady was awesome at least. I hope your roommate is going well now :)

I was involved in a workplace accident a few years ago where my foot was crushed and I was told that I was extremely lucky not to lose my foot. During my recovery in the trauma ward and subsequent rehabilitation I spent a lot of time with and befriended many people who had to undergo amputation. The thing that inspired me most was how strong and courageous they were, which was a shining light onto my soul. One of the things I could tell they appreciated most was positivity coming their way from others, and being treated like a whole person, having a laugh like they used to and just talking about every day things.

I helped a few of them research sporting programmes and things of the like which I think for them was a nice productive break away from a medical professional helping them. Depending on where you are, there could be a massive amount of energetic outlets for the little dude catering specifically to him and other amputees - archery, tennis, basketball just to name a few. Mostly, though, I think your positivity and compassion will go a long way to helping him through all of this. You don't necessarily need to know the right things to say, but if you're supportive, patient, understanding, and most of all a shining beacon of positivity in the young guy's life, then you're doing all the right things.

My thoughts are with you, him, and his family, and I wish you all the very best :)

I think the most important thing to remember is that time in nineteen ninety eight when the undertaker threw mankind off hеll in a cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer's table.
