Positive and negative are polar opposites but sometimes it isn’t that straight forward.
Everyone tells me to stay positive
but I’m positive that things aren’t as they should be.
I’m positive that my minimum wage retail job sucks.
The amount of joy I have for my work is negative.
I’m positive that my home life is a disaster.
It seems like my happiness has become a negative.
The number of deaths is positive and grows more every day. The amount of compassion I see people showing others is growing dangerously close to the negatives.
I’m positive that it gets harder to force myself out of bed each day.
I’m positive my anxiety gets worse each day.
I’m positive I see the lights in my family’s eyes grow dimmer each day.
