5 Finger Personalities

    Here are the personalities for each of the fingers you use in your daily life! Your thumb is the one we use for everything, especially eating. Your index finger is the poindexter, it’s also the pointer. The middle finger is the thug, always bullying and being mean to others. Your ring finger is…confused. And your Pinky finger is the innocent and shy one.

      Everybody wanted to go to the moon when they were younger. Imagine if everyone got the opportunity to go to the moon, we’d all be living on the moon doing nothing. The moon would be filled with unemployed dreamers.

      Freedom Of Speech Tweet

        Because of twitter, our freedom of speech right is used to its fullest extent. As we go to different parts of the world, we see the twitter bird starts dying off as not everybody has that right.

        America’s tweety bird is alive and singing as we have our freedom of speech right. In other countries the bird is aware of what it says because its speech is watched. The bird starts flying away when in countries with temporary freedom of speech because it wants to avoid trouble. Then the bird turns into a robot in countries with manipulated freedom of speech. Now the robot bird is caged in when in countries with repressed speech. And finally, the bird is cooked having its freedom killed when in countries with no freedom of speech.

        “What Did I Miss?”

          Because of smartphones, this generation isn’t fully aware of life around them. We’ll roam the streets with our heads down looking at our phones and end up missing the opportunity of a lifetime because of it. We don’t live life day by day anymore because technology is taking up most of our time. We miss out on the real life as we enjoy simulations of life through electronics. Our phones have become the real life to us.

              Before, in the 20th century, people wanted to go outside and have fun but were tied down to their work and jobs. Their inner child would want to go out and experience life. Now in the 21st century we go outside as characters on games and have all of our fun inside with technology! Our inner child is doing the same thing we do in real life and doesn’t want to explore because as we grew up technology was always there!

                  Remember when you found out that Santa Claus wasn’t real? How did that make you feel? If you were like most kids, you were probably disappointed.

                  What about your first heartbreak? This made you realize that love doesn’t last forever. As you grew up, finished college and got your degree, you realized that having this piece of paper doesn’t really guarantee you a job in that profession.

                  Now as an adult you see that the ideals you had as you grew up were most likely false and you have the pay the price for believing in them. And what is that price? Your time. Now as an older person you saw how much time you’ve wasted and now your life is withering away!

                  7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                  7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

                  Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

                  But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

                  If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

                  1. Limit the time you spend with them.

                  First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

                  Advertising

                  In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

                  Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

                  2. Speak up for yourself.

                  Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

                  3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

                  This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

                  But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

                  4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

                  Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

                  This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

                  Why else would they be sharing this with you?

                  5. Change the subject.

                  When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

                  Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

                  6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

                  Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

                  I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

                  You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

                  Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

                  7. Leave them behind.

                  Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

                  If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

                  That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
