The Less You Respond To Negativity, The More Peaceful You Become


Those Who Fight Monsters

When did you last experience a negative encounter with someone? Was it this week? How did it work out? It is my experience that we cannot resolve negativity with more negativity. I liken it to putting out a fire with gasoline. Whilst your intentions may be honourable, gasoline causes vapours from the gas to burn wildly and the same happens when we douse negativity with more of it. Negative people are not like you and me insofar as they are addicted to the high that negativity offers. To put it another way, have you ever been so angry and experienced anger’s energy simmering in your body that it felt euphoric? It is this intensity that negative people are drawn to. Retaliating with negativity, empowers them more and you are likely to walk away feeling disillusioned.

However, dealing with negative people with objectivity confuses them because they’re not accustomed to it. I’m not suggesting you become a doormat and allow others to walk all over you. I would encourage you to choose your battles wisely. Negative people are not battles you want to enter into lightly, since you will lose every time. It was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche who said: “Those who fight monsters should be careful lest they become monsters.” Negative people are experts at owning their darkness and enjoy being mired in toxic situations. They look for negativity at any opportunity and will drag you into their pit of despair. Even if you win the battle, you will lose the war for they will come back at you with greater force. This can stifle people because they are unaccustomed to dealing with toxic people.

I mentioned in an earlier article that I’ve been dealing with negative neighbours for over a twelve months. They try to pull me into their negativity, yet I stay calm and peaceful because I refused to succumb to their ways. I will not be drawn into their world since I prefer peace and harmony, not being impregnated with unnecessary drama. They cannot understand how I can remain calm amid their chaos and confusion. It is because I nurture the gifts of: patience, wisdom, inner peace and compassion. I will not allow others to stampede across my mind with their conflicts, when it has taken me years of personal growth to arrive at this state.

Don’t Engage With Them

Yes, I concede that negativity is addictive because it triggers primaeval emotions that force us to respond in anger and haste. Sometimes, this means saying or doing things out of character which we regret later. Isn’t it better to bide our time instead of responding to an emotionally charged situation? Sure, you may give them a piece of your mind which feels good, however we must choose our battles wisely because winning the day doesn’t mean winning the war. How do you feel about this? I realise it may raise questions about unfairness? But we mustn’t see it that way because they aren’t winning. It may look that way but step into their shoes and you soon realise the heavy cost of carrying that negativity. What I’m saying is negative energy eventually takes it toll on a person.

How dreary must their lives be if negativity is their answer to everything? It reminds me of the story told by the Buddha in which he equated anger being akin to holding hot coal in our hands. Whilst the intention is to throw it at another person, we are the ones that get burned. This personifies what negative people thrive on. Their anger and hatred become their weapon turned against them. Similarly, if you’re familiar with the area of mind-body medicine, you know that toxic emotions may manifest as disease in the body, if given enough attention. So, what is the antidote to dealing with negative people? There isn’t a secret, other than to stay clear of them where possible, for it was Albert Einstein who once said: “Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.” In a similar vein, I would advise you to notice your own anger and negativity when in their company. It’s not that I don’t get angry when I’m around destructive people, however I’ve learned to direct this energy appropriately. It will require practice and you will slip up on occasions.

When your decide that a mobile DJ rack is for you, then you will of course, need have equipment that can fit into the mobile units. Remember, these racks are smaller, therefore, you need mixers and other equipment that actually will fit in the mobile units. The mobile type of DJ mounting is become more popular due to limited space and the fact that many of today’s DJ’s actually move about from one place to another, which makes the mobility not only useful but necessary.

You might think that because the rack is mobile and smaller that the mixers and other equipment you need will not be as powerful as the full-sized editions, but with the advancement of technology, the mobile DJ equipment have become not only easier to manage, but they offer sound quality and mixing capabilities that were once not thought of in a mobile unit. Everything has been affected by the advancement of technology and of course smaller-sized equipment has been greatly enhanced from what it once was just a few short years ago.

One of the nicest aspects to the mobile rack is that it offers you the same features ability to rack your DJ equipment in a nice and tidy way. This is very helpful if you happen to move about often, because the DJ racks that are mobile are easily disassembled, and then can be placed in another location with ease. However, many that have their permanent gigs are turning to a mobile DJ rack because it is a space-saver and they can use the latest smaller DJ equipment and save space at the same time.

Finally, when you are shopping for a mobile DJ rack, make sure it has all the features and rack compartments to adequately hold the amount of equipment you have. The DJ racks come in different sizes and different amount of racks, therefore, make sure that you have a unit that works well with the amount of equipment you have, otherwise, the rack isn’t going to truly benefit you the way it is designed to, which would mean you having to store some of your other DJ equipment off the rack, which can cause numerous damage possibilities when it is not racked properly.
