Can you find something nice to say about certain people (or a person) you find irritating?
Even though there are gossips in the office, they are kind and good to their families.
I try to remember my mom adivce if you can not say something nice keep your mouth shut
This is a good exercise. I try to do that with things in general--like trying to find a redeeming quality or a blessing in disguise for certain circumstances/situations. Sometimes when I get cut off in traffic (for example), I think to myself that maybe they are running late for an appointment. It helps to take the edge off the sting.
I have really, really tried to become a more positive person these last few months.
