negativity

so, I know the world is generally a negative place.

This does not mean I have to be. So I've decided to follow the advice that every one's mother seems to have given them... "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all"

I started practicing this at work. Keep in mind that this is a place that I'm not a fan of, and I have a LOT of negative thoughts about. So, someone made a comment to me, and I started to respond. Then stopped.

When asked why, I said, "I'm practising the art of being positive, and I don't have anything positive to say..."

It's interesting how often I faced backlash regarding this. Are people really just THAT focused on being negative?
