Negative people

There are some people who have a ‘natural’ gift for seeing only the worst in every situation. They whine and complain about  things, refusing to do anything about them as it’s not their fault.

It’s no secret that attitude is infectious. Just like there are people who can “light up the room with a single smile”, there are those, who can “kill the mood” without even saying a word. Being around negative people can make you feel pessimistic, drained of energy, stressed, worried and irritated.

Unfortunately, we cannot always avoid dealing with negative people. They may be our friends, colleagues or family members. But we can learn to distance ourselves emotionally and not let them engage us in negative conversation.
