Small Victories and Negativity

teatro vuoto Today there was a trivial victory in the morning. It was almost instantly followed by negativity from the usual lot. I laughed a little, and the day went off as planned. The big mistake I was making was faking the niceness and well meaning nature when dealing with the negativity. Then I happened to come across this quote and it has changed my perspective forever. Now I laugh and do whatever it takes to make myself happy. Do I forget those who put me down? Of course not. Do I wish them well? Of course not. It would be surely foolish of me to wish well of people who do not do the same for me. Good will is the fuel of the soul, it has to be put to use or all you have is an inefficient machine, generating wasteful heat.
