Accentuate the Positive and Avoid the Negative

leave a comment »

It is important to avoid negative people if you can. Nothing can bring down a day faster than having to listen to the rantings of those who are perpetually complaining about something. It can tempting to try and fix whatever their problems are but be warned they don’t want you to fix them, because if you did, they’d have to find something else to complain about. And if you try to get them to look at something in a positive way, they may get mad and consider you stupid or naive for not seeing how terrible something is.

Other than just bringing you down, another danger is that a negative person can turn on you and make you the subject of their complaining to other people. It’s best to be polite, avoid them when you can or try to look busy when they try to pull you into a rant.
