Aligning yourself with positive energy of gratitude will attract more positive energy to you. The people close to you (mostly family, friends) care about you even if they do not show it outwardly.
Focusing on giving thanks to these people is more fulfilling than doing other unpleasant things like arguing, picking up flaws, or having hidden agendas (being untrue).
Building an attitude of gratitude is not hard. You can easily do this by getting a gratitude journal where you record all the things or people that you are grateful to, and all the things that you are grateful for even if you do not have them yet.
Protect that journal next to your bed, and remember to write it every day before you sleep. Then read it right before sleeping and reread it every time you wake up in the morning. This will remind you of all the positive things in your life throughout the day and will keep you in a phenomenal vibration that will attract good and positive things in your life.
