How do you release negativity so it doesn't reflect back on your reality?
The main thing is to know that what you are releasing the negative feeling, and not reacting or retaliating with negativity to some incident. That is typically how negativity gets perpetuated. If you have some feeling of negativity, such as fear or anger, instead of forming words and actions from that feeling and directing it at someone, take a moment and acknowledge what you are feeling to yourself. Then take 3 full deep breaths where you feel the tension and stress in your body and mind release. If you have a private space, you can make an audible tone to accompany your exhalation that facilitates the expression of your feeling. Some people find that writing out their feelings is an effective way to safely release negative feelings. It can also be helpful to go for a walk in nature or workout in the gym or dance. All of these are good ways to clear charged feelings without hurting anyone or continuing the cycle of hurt.
