In this life, we can’t hide the fact that we really can’t avoid being too good always. Because there are a lot of contributing factors as of why we act in unacceptable ways occasionally.

A bad attitude is like a vehicle’s flat tire, you can’t continue your journey unless you change or fix it.

When a tire can’t do its function, the whole vehicle will be compromised. Just like in real life, if you have a bad attitude, you can’t function well, due to problems related to focusing and completing tasks.

Implication of negative attitudes

Let us start with the negative attitude. A negative attitude can produce chronic stress that could lead to other personality and mood disorders, which can make us so upset, and will intervene with the hormonal balance of our body.

  • It depletes the brain’s needed chemical that is required to produce the hormone that is responsible for our happiness.
  • It can damage the immune system, and as a result, it could decrease our body’s ability to fight diseases.
  • Not only that, but it also decreases lifespan, so because you have a depleted ability to fight diseases, your body will easily catch or develop it.

Bad people are usually hopeless, they lack confidence to face life, and they are negative thinkers and low-spirited too. They don’t usually pray for guidance, humbleness, and they don’t give gratitude for all the blessings that they received because they are prideful, and they think that it isn’t necessary.

What are the effects of bad attitude:
