quoted Warren Buffet about reaction. ” you will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.”

Cited this to make the point that in a world where everyone seems to have a negative reaction to everything done or said, be a positive one if you have to react at all.  If we start at home and lift one another up, who knows how that will translate in life for the person who is being negative.  People don’t always remember what you do but they do remember how you made them feel.
