Five of Swords as Advice
Teaching Others To Learn As You DoIt isn’t always as easy as it seems to take failure in stride. Even if you are able to learn from your mistakes and become a better person, the people around you may not be able to do the same. It can be very easy to let yourself be brought down by the negativity of others, and you may find that the people around you have fallen into pessimism and aggression in order to protect themselves from further disappointment. Unfortunately, this type of response is far more common than ones that would be much more productive in teaching you how to better cope with the struggles of living. However, this does not mean that you also have to fall into this “dog-eat-dog” mentality. While you may be disappointed or annoyed by the pessimism of those around you, your hopeful perspective on things could potentially teach others how to grow past this pessimistic style of thinking. Use your ability to learn from your mistakes as a chance to act as a pillar of wisdom for those who may not have the same ability to put things in perspective as you. Try not to be discouraged by the sour attitudes of others; their perception of the state of things does not mean that you should alter your view of the world to match theirs. Instead, take this as an opportunity to gently guide others towards a more constructive thought path. What can they learn from their current circumstances? What power to they have to change the current situation? How will the issues that they are currently thinking teach them how to avoid or prevent similar problems in the future? You are already well equipped to tackle these bigger questions, but others may need a little help reaching this same point. At the same point, it is important to remember that you can never force another person to think a certain way. You must also be able to set boundaries for yourself in order to keep your own mentality healthy; if that means turning your gaze away from those whose pessimistic mindset only breeds more negativity, then that is what must be done.
