It's Time To Drop Your Attitude
The Indian Express

We all have that one friend who needs a major attitude adjustment. If you don't, chances are you are that friend. It's all fine and dandy to throw some sass here and there, but let's be real, it gets irritating after a while. Nobody wants to have a conversation with Oscar the Grouch every day of their life. Don't believe me? Just read my five highly logical reasons as to why you need to drop your attitude zero to one hundred kind of quick.

1. You Can Catch More Flies With Honey Than With Vinegar

Not literally (for those of you who cringed and said "ew"). You're obviously going to get further in life being sweet rather than bitter. No one likes a salty troll. Also, I don't think people enjoy straight vinegar, so ponder that.

2. Karma Is a B-Word

Even if you're not superstitious, the universe has a funny way of working itself out. You put into the world what you get out of it. If you're the type of person that likes to give random, unsuspecting strangers the stink eye, then don't be surprised when you get your car keyed.

3. People Feed Off Your Energy

Have you ever been around someone that just sucks the life out of everything like a freaking Dementor? Well, if you have a nasty attitude, the same this is going to go down. Instead of acting like a Negative Nancy, channel your Positive Patsy of whatever name tickles your fancy.

4. Bad Vibes = Bad Life

I used to work with a girl who oozed negativity. From sunrise to sunset this girl couldn't crack a smile to save her life. In turn she had no friends, no one wanted to share their cool snacks with her, and I'm sure she was labeled undateable by every matchmaking service out there. Trust me, nobody wants to associate with a downer 24/7.

5. The Golden Rule

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F04%2F636031918905446950232131012_longwalksandrudepeople.gif%3Fw%3D490&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=806&h=622fc7187f0d099a14b47b223acd809eb9c5779c4a9da2140a79cd225b601366&size=980x&c=4238689843 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F04%252F636031918905446950232131012_longwalksandrudepeople.gif%253Fw%253D490%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D806%26h%3D622fc7187f0d099a14b47b223acd809eb9c5779c4a9da2140a79cd225b601366%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4238689843%22%7D" expand=1]

You treat people how you want to be treated. Rolling your eyes at the man ringing up your items at Target won't make him rush. Yelling your order at the Chipotle workers won't make them roll your burrito faster. It's all about respect and understanding.


It's normal to get aggravated. Sometimes we can't help when we lash out at people. But the next time you feel like throwing shade just take a breather. Identify your problem. Ninety-five percent of the time I have an attitude because I'm hungry, so if you're like me just eat something and chill yourself out. Life is too good to always be grumpy. Go out with your friends, dance, laugh, have a good time. If someone starts acting up just lend them your ear, maybe they need to let out some steam. Like I said, it's all about respect and understanding.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"

1057

I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
