When I came across this quote I thought this is so true.
I grew up in a toxic environment with negativity being a huge part of my life, but as a child I somehow knew that my life didn't have to continue in that direction. So as a young adult I worked on retraining my mind to think differently. In fact, my husband kids me about all of the quotes and positive books that I read, but that's what works for me to keep my mind set the way I want and need it to be.
Don't let the negatives in life steal your joy and who you are. Let it give you strength and power to become the person that you want to be.
