This takes practice. A lot of it. The idea that you can let negativity bounce off you isn’t really true. Unless you have some awesome force field, negativity from other people or something that’s happened is going to touch you. Whether you allow all of it in to consume you or  break it into pieces that can scatter can make a huge difference.  I’m not going to give you some “think positive and positive things will happen” line of BS because we all know that alone doesn’t bring you out of poverty but when you’re living in tough times, the last thing you need is to be full on taken over by negativity. That’ll eat you alive.
