It is often said that negativity begets negativity and this is completely true. Negativity is a very contagious state of mind. If your mind entertains a single negative thought, it tends to attract many others of the same kind. Such thoughts can have a damaging effect not only on your mind but your health and emotions as well. As such, it is essential to keep all kinds of negative energy away from your life. If you suspect that your life is affected by negative energy, you need to take steps to overcome it and fill your life with positive energy.
