One very good reason you need to stay away from negative people.
Life is too short, to put up with people who bring you down, drain you, cause you to question yourself. Criticise you, harp on and on about their life and the problems they have, had, will have!
If you can avoid the person altogether than do so, don’t bother looking for strategies, just move on.
Even if it is a family member or friend, don’t look for reasons why you should be around them. There is no reason, only what you want to tell yourself.
I have walked away from family members, who has been always critical and negative. It was the best thing I ever did. As I began to look at my beliefs and bring them to the light, I no longer felt a need to have them in my life.
Being a family is a difficult thing to do. If you can’t walk away you can always limit the amount of family gatherings you attend.
You don’t owe anybody anything. If you don’t feel comfortable there is no point trying to prove why you can’t walk away.
If this is the case, then maybe you should ask yourself, why you feel the need to look for reasons to seek their company.
Stay away from negative people because you don’t need it.
You don’t need to waste your energy, you don’t need to explain yourself.
Don’t buy into the crap they are dishing out, don’t take it personally. Don’t walk away scowling and thinking about how much you can’t stand their company.
If there is one thing I love about growing older, it is the sense of freedom I feel. I no longer care what other people think.
If you’re negative, I stay away. It’s that simple, I don’t sugar coat it, I don’t come up with excuses, I just walk the walk.
Better than that, I find now in life I am attracting these types of people less and less.
I only surround myself with positive people.
I refuse to spend so much as a nanosecond on someone who wants to drain me and bring me down with them.
Certainly, be a caring, compassionate person. Give it to those who want to grow, who want better. Who want to give it back and who deserve the love and time you have to give.
Let those caught up in their own misery, work it out, just as you have.
It is your life, you make the decisions, you hold the answer to your health and well-being. If it doesn’t feel good, you know what to do, don’t talk about it, do it.
Why stay away from negative people? Because you’re worth it.
