Negative people, do you have them in your life? What makes them negative to you? Do they complain a lot? Are they victims of their life and always talking about it? Is nothing ever good enough for them? Do they complain about you? Are you the reason for their misery and problems?
Regardless of any advice from self-help gurus, what about the negative person that we see in the mirror every morning? Do you know the one I'm talking about? The one that doesn't want to get out of bed and certainly doesn't want to go to work. The one who procrastinates then beats us up later in the day for not getting things done. The one that tells us that eating some ice cream or potato chips will surely make us feel better then berates us for not having an self control and calls us a failure. The one that ultimately tells us we are not attractive, not smart enough, not worthy and definitely not lovable.
Why would we allow this negative person to be in our life if we are so keen on getting rid of negativity in our lives? I'd love to know what you think about this, and, if you have any methods you use to get rid of negativity in your life...both in yourself and in others. How do you do with negativity?
