Today i remember an old story about how a bad apple turned 10 other good apples bad..at that time, i was told this story by my teachers and parents to tell me that a bad company can transform you to have some bad habits..but now a days when i think to tell this story to my kid, i think hard what i will tell my daughter if she asks me that why 10 good apples could not turn that bad apple good?..why always a good person being turned bad and not vice versa..
Should i tell her that Negativity has always been stronger than positivity?..it takes immense power and self control to be positive all the times, but it takes just a thought to turn you negative after all that hard work..and its so strong that it sucks all positivity around you that you have been trying to contain for so many days.. now a days, with so many distractions all over the place, it has just got messier…
Jealousy is one of the strongest factor of this negativity..an update on the facebook by any of your connection can turn you jealous..” How on this earth can s/he be travelling to these places every other day?..Another car/house?..s/he has some other source of income i tell you…Has s/he got no other work than to post his morphed photo on the fb daily?. oh, s/he has got so loving husband/wife!! i have never been gifted things like that etc etc.” and what not..(disclaimer: i have posted only the most benign of comments i have heard over the years)…i am not over reacting when i say that i have seen very rich, successful people going frustrated and ultimately depressed over the success of another person, forgetting that they have got enough to make others jealous..
i will elaborate on other negative aspects sometime later…now, i am busy thinking how to hide this story from my daughter.. (she is already here with her story book in her hands…God Save me!!! from her questions..)
