In my lot ,a lot of topics ,or interest that people share.Some are agree,some are not. That is normal because people are different in opinions,comments and etc and i understand it.But if the topics is clear,and encouraging,and then someone try to push you down about it,is it right attitude?Or because of someone don't like to hear it or because of pride..? Even you do best to be positive,helpful,kind person but that person is not in the right heart,and also can seen in what inside of his mouth and post it will really know that He/he arrogant...

Negativity is going to be around, I guess all we can do is carry on and ignore it. I try to think of successful people and there are so many examples. It seems that everyone that ever did something was discouraged by someone else in their career or life. Right now I am thinking of Walt Disney. I believe he was told to get a real job and stop playing around with silly cartoons. It is a good thing he didn’t listen because he brought so many children joy in his time. In online activities there are always going to be those who do not care much about how they might affect others negatively. I don't want to be like that. It is a dangerous mind set for anyone to have because it reflects into their heart and just might bite them later on.

To push someone down is not a right attitude. All of us have different opinion i think it is good to correct them. Different ideas and thinking help us to improve a lot. The subject discussion is meant for that. only criticism can improve a person if it is good or bad it is not a matter.

The best way to deal with such is not to react at all. Just ignore them out if they are not into trying to make a healthy discussion. Some people just love to argue and not really discuss. Just stick with those people who are polite and open minded and are willing to discuss instead of starting an argument. People who are close minded and always thinks that they are right are not worth the time talking and responding to. What do you think? If you just let yourself carried away with such kind of people, you effectively feed them of their egos because you are paying attention to them. While if you just ignore them, they can't do anything about it but waste their efforts trying to get your attention. Simple!

First of all, you are a unique person, you have your own opinion, values and motivation for yourself to succeed and you cannot be affected by others discouragement because you know yourself more and what you can do. I suggest that when someone tries to discourage you? the more you go for a positive or optimistic mind. This is because the person trying to discourage you has nothing to do directly to you. You will not be affected because he cannot direct your life. just think that it is just a "bad air" or maybe he has a "seizure". and easy to eliminate. Just understand them.. React positively no matter how discouraging his opinions are. This is what we call ethics. You may react by just giving simple and short replies like "thank you for that" and "have fun"... I think he will not make any continuing statement again because he has not got anything to comment again No matter even they are those of negative kind. They are part of our world. Just pass them by...like a raindrops, let the rain stops before you walk so you will have a nice walk

Even though if a topic is encouraging, we should accept all kind of reaction for all types of people. If we are not ready to accept , then there is no need to post the topic here.

I know people is not the same as to me and others, but if you have the right spirit you should leave comments good and if not you can pass it to other. and also better to stay away people like that but should understand and corrected if people are not willing to be corrected it means it is pride.

I don't think that anybody has the right to discourage any other individual from something that they want to do, and, because of this, I simply don't pay any attention to people who tell me that I won't be able to reach my dreams for some reason. I don't think that people realise that they're being so bad sometimes, but I do think that you should talk to them about it if you don't think they realise what they're saying. Some people are just generally negative and pessimistic so they just don't say nice encouraging things to anybody else.

Well at the beginning when I didn't know that there are people like that in mylot I tried to br nice and polite, but now that I see that there are people here that don't care about making friends, sharing experiences, earning money,or nothing like that, people that only come here to discourage the others and make your discussion goes to the wrong way, I ignore them, that is the best way to deal with that kind of persons,so they will feel terrible to see that we respond to everybody but them.

If anybody wants to discourage me I will told them if you dont want to support me then dont worry I will do it alone but dont discourge me because I know this is good work and I cant do it with the help of others if not provided. I am positive thinking Indian married women haha..and still I not face this problem always the family members or friends encourage me.

It is really a bad way to react like this. People must appreciate the good views and degrade the bad views.It is good to read good comments and bad to read bad comments. But, criticism is also good as there are different people with different opinions!
