Sometimes it doesn’t matter how hard you try: there’s a negative person out there just waiting to shoot down your opinions, blow your positivity to pieces, and/or infect you with their toxins. Their glass is either half-empty or non-existent. Their mood is gloomy and pessimistic. They never see the rainbow in the sky after the downpour. The end of the world is probably, for them, very near.
And having dealt with a lot of negative people in my life to date, this post resonated with me. If you are tired of dealing with the negative personas in your world too, then hopefully you will find some words of wisdom here as well. Let’s be positive rather than negative because together we can indeed make the world a better place – one sweet smile at a time. Here is an excerpt:
“Recognize and accept their toxicity
First and foremost, it is important to identify and accept that someone we know is a negative person. This can be difficult, especially when the person is someone we care about. Either way, we must be careful not to allow their negativity to transfer onto us. We need to accept that negativity is toxic and will only breed more negativity. It is especially important to avoid complainers. People who complain have given up hope that their actions can make any difference. We must be careful not to enable complainers by always listening to their woes.” Read more

This is a very interesting quote which I recently tried to apply to my own life. Everything it seemed irritated me: traffic, being late for work, having to go to meetings where attendees are unprepared, people not respecting my time …. the list was endless but the real questions I had to ask myself are shown below. Introspection is good and although I haven’t completely come up with all the answers as yet, I invite you to take a moment to think about these questions as well, especially if you find yourself irritated about certain things in your life from time to time.
