    Maintain an open mind. Instead of, for example, thinking, "This article is rubbish," think "mm. This article isn't bad." Don't rush yourself into making judgment. You aren't running for Jesus, so just take it bit by bit, and soon, you will be positive in no time.

    Don't waste your time feeling upset about what people have said to you in the past. Think of the future. Ignore those who deliberately try to hurt you, and focus on those who have always been there for you.

    If you want to make friends, don't nag. Nagging makes other people feel insecure and annoyed. Stand your ground, don't just agree with what they say, or they will think you are boring. Come across as interesting, even if you aren't.
