All of my friends know that I really loathe negativity. It is just so terribly destructive. I think for me what adds insult to injury about negativity is that it is in fact unnecessary. The only positive thing that negativity does is to demonstrate the importance of having a positive attitude; a kind of "unless you see the effect of negativity you cannot fully appreciate the benefits of positivity". I can no more see a useful outcome from the experience of negativity than I can from feelings of guilt.

Do you know how to deal with your anger in everyday situations? All of us get angry once in a while, it's a necessary emotion triggered by the human's "fight or flight" mechanism. Learning to cope with anger before it goes to far is extremely important for your mental and physical health. These health problems could include heart disease, stroke, or even depression.

It takes some time for someone who gets angry frequently to finally get their senses up and start visiting any help they can get. A good way to start off may be a local doctor, but in most of the time the doctor will send you to a counselor to help you in controlling your temper.
Changing careers after 50 is not easy but it is possible. Over 50s know they have a lifetime of transferable skills and experience that can be applied in different contexts. The challenge is to convince others that those skills and experience are just what they need. To make a successful transition it is important to realize that you are marketing a product and that product is YOU. Like any marketing, the perception of the product must be carefully managed to give it the best possible chance of success, and you need to be certain that it is being marketed to the right people.
