You may influence by them if you are near,and listen to what he/she says... This is not good because if you support what they have said, i am sure you are influence! You have to give advice,or correct to not do it because if will do it and doit if no one told to stop by being negativity will worse more... Talking back the bad hapening,bringing up and will add more,this person is not good to be around! What would you do?

Yes, I prefer to stay away from negative people, because I don't want to be contaminated with something negative. It is very bad to life in the negative situation.

It is better to stay away from such kind of people and surround yourself with positive people. But what if it happens to be your friends? Perhaps they became very negative due to some reasons. Would you leave them instead of helping them out because of this belief and fearing they might influence you? It is still in your hands if you let them. You have your brain to freely decide.

The things that i have learned so far out of life (and from reading a few life books like The Secret) is that what you feel is what you get, being in company of a group or individual that is negative would surely affect you in one way or another, it could be the way you think, your emotions and feelings at that moment. So i guess i were in that situation i would surely stay away from that negative person. If i had to choose either to be with myself or to be with that kind of person. i would choose to be with myself, as it's hard to be positive about life if someone is clinging on you to be down about it. :D

YOu are right. Staying with negative people will just influence you to be negative aswell. If you want to live a hapy life, choose the right people to go with. There are a lot of vices in this worl and once you get introduce to one, it is hard to get out of it. If you are with people with negative aura, beware.

I think that many are under the false illusion that they aren't influenced by who they are around. They see that they are their own person, and that they aren't persuaded by peers. However, they're ignoring the truth. I have learned that we are more influenced by peers than we care to admit. As people spend more and more time together, they are more and more influenced by one another. Friends who may have a few things in common gradually become more and more similar. I have only met one person who I've witnessed adequately stand up to peer pressure. Everyone else caves in. People have the naive belief that they'll influence someone else for the better, yet the opposite tends to be the case. I agree that if we spend inordinate amounts of time with negative people, we too, will become negative. We'll start to adopt their perspective and see things in the negative light that they do. We probably won't realize it at first, but eventually it will grip us and we'll see just how alike we have become to that person.

According to what you said, i agree with since it is your experience..Yes can be true ,you will influence by them even you corrected and not leave,will still be more negative people..One day they will realize it..

You are right. One bad apple does spoil the whole barrel. Negativity spreads and the only way to stop it tainting you is to walk away. It is no good arguing with a negative mind-set as not much will change it into a positive one. I keep away from people who pull me down and try to spoil my day. I live as positively as I can and try to see the good in everything and at least try to teach others to do the same.

Hello We should always stay from people who have negative thought because this could bring negativity in our minds too. I do not like be friendly with those person who appear to me of negative bend of mine and shun away these kind of persons. It is always better to be among those friends who are positive and always go for positive things. Positivity brings success in our life.

Vandy! Do you have any doubts about my thoughts?

Yes, as much as possible, I stay away from negative people and negative thoughts. Of course, I do this because I want to maintain a positive outlook in life and negativity will never help on this principle of mine. But yes, we can't do away with the negativity after all. So what I do is to confront negativity with a positive note. I remember one time that I walked into the area of one of my colleagues at work. She had a bad temper and the moment I walked inside her door, she started talking out loudly and angrily at me. I just kept my cool and replied to all the things that she said in a polite and nice manner. Very soft spoken at that. It ended up that her bad tempered subside when I didn't bulged into being angry. Then she realized that her problem can be easily solved. I believe that not being caught too much by your emotions, like being bad tempered or angry, can make one see things in a clear and reasonable manner. Then we can be calm and think of great solutions without having to deal with the stress of the temper. Just my two cents in here!

Hello befrindwithme26, That's true we should stay away from the negative people as their negativity may effect us too and really its tough for us to always guide them and tell them not to be negative.I always remain positive in life and keep company of people who are positive towards life and who always take challenges with smile.

I agree with only a few words "tough for us to always guide them". There is a great deal of positivity in every negative person. They are negative because they shield themselves from the worst possible outcome. So mentally they prepare themselves for the worst possible all the time, hoping for the best. The idea is not to get shocked.

Let's say that the negative person(s) is a fire. Do you.. 1) Stand aside so it can burn as it will to, perhaps, damage and/or destroy what is important to you? or 2) Confront it and attempt to put it out to protect what is important to you? The people who do the most damage are the people who do nothing.. Enjoy!

I agree. :) But at times, people do have enough on their hands. Then they can only manage a few things. That does not mean that they should put an embargo on all those who need an ear.

It is okay to be with negative people as long as you know where you stand. You yourself should know what is right. As for that situation, you should tell that person nicely. You should try to weight things all the time.

I don't really like being around people with negative thoughts, as it seems that they just drag things down and such. It's just not really pleasant, when I find myself with this sort of person.

It depends upon who you call negative people. To me negative people are those who are constantly trying to do some harm to others. Even those who are inconsiderate to others feelings qualify, but not those who are desperately trying to survive. Yes, people are often sad. Some may have more problems on hand at present, so we can listen to their problems. If we've been through those, may be we can offer solution. If not, we can keep our eyes and ears open to find some solution. Believe me we become more dynamic with such brain application. Someday in future, we our our dear ones may face similar problems. We can at that point of time pour our wisdom. So I am of the opinion that each problem that god gives to us or brings before us is like a puzzle which needs to be solved. It is not necessary that we solve every one of those puzzles. But we score. The more we score, the more we are ahead in the race. Yes, if the story is repeated too often it does get on nerves. But it has cathartic effect on the person. I think the person can be called depressed or in need of psychiatric help only if the person is unable to think of anything else. That happens very rarely. Such a person has truly magnified that pain to gigantic proporptions. You would realize that such a person is unwilling to take any help from you. So if you can steer him or her to right channels - psychiatrist, or steer clear otherwise, the person can encroach upon your time for your mental health.

I think you're very right when you say that you should stay away from people who are negative all of the time. The reason for this is that they will make you feel as though you're down like they are if you spend too much time with them. I have some friends who are just like that, and I cannot tell you the amount of stress that I have been through during the course of my friendship because of the fact that they're just so negative. You have to learn to get people out of your life who are making it a misery, though.

it is not that the perosn is wrong or does want something or expects soemthing negative happen.These are people who are more experienced as they experience some thing in their own life,they try to suggest others from going in and getting a fall.Some fear for things so they say somethign negative,When a negative person is nearby the other perosn will become a positive one,As there is always no adjustment or agreeing to others statements.
