Then there are negative people that mean no harm, they are just caught up in their negativity. Rather than take his/her words personally; recognize that he/she is just offering a point of view.
For example, I once had a friend who was quite tactless. She would drop upsetting comments which were dismissive. Initially I was bothered by her words, wondering why she had to be so mean. I also wondered if there was something wrong with me – that perhaps I wasn’t good enough. However, when I observed her interactions with our common friends, I realized she did this to them too. Her comments were not personal attacks – it was just her being the way she was.
Do not spend your time with negative people; focus on the positive people in your life. In the past, I spent a lot of time with negative people, trying to help them with their issues. It drained up a lot of my energy and was often pointless, which led me to rethink my methods. Ever since then, I worked on cultivating positivity by hanging out with positive friends and family members. This has turned out to be a lot more rewarding.
