I wish I was suprised, but It's crazy how many negative people there are in this world. I mean not only negative, but down right mean and nasty when you believe differently then them. They will go out of their way to prove you wrong. Even when they are trying to prove that it's not okay to be happy... I would love to be able to change the minds of these people, but I know the only mind I can change is my own... I can share my thoughts and ideas with others, but it's always up to them to want to think differently so they can have different results from life. I for the most part just don't allow these people to take up to much of my time of thoughts. How do you deal with such negative and down right mean people?

It is true that there's lots of negative people around. Its like they seem to underestimate others because they don't want you to be the first one will judge them. Don't think of them too much. If you know that you are not doing anything wron to them,let them be. Perhaps they don't know what to do to their own lives so they judge people negatively...

oh, so you are saying that there are mylotters who think and respond negatively on your post huh... well, we do have different kinds of beliefs in life. just respect what they feel. but also if we know what's right thing to do, don't mind those who think negatively. sometimes they are just testing how would you react on things or how would you defend your beliefs...

i just mean that there are so many people who think the world is out to get them. they don't believe in themselves are their abilities to change their lives.

i agree to the first reply. as long as you are not doing anything wrong, then there is no point to worry about them. the question is, are you really not doing anything wrong? you need to assess yourself also. sometimes we are not open minded. try to put yourself to other's shoe so you will have a better idea if you are on the right side or there are things you need to change within you.

i keep my mind very open to the love and beauty the world has to offer. "Wrong" is perception. I mean there is the universal law of right and wrong. But expressing my joy and happiness of doing well should not make others upset.

Egocentric people ..there really are quite a lot of them in this world of ours. Standing alone in good stead and speaking truth in a courageous manner would not solve up the entire behavior of the class of people who are in fact negligent of outwardly life and things.

That is true. I rather stand alone in happiness then in a crowd of negativity

Hi there, long time no respond. I think that the present economy has a lot to do with the way folks are thinking in these times of turmoil. I see a lot more negativity all around in the last four years than I have in the 50 or so years before. It must be that so many people are afraid of the coming times and feel helpless to do anything about it.

Hi 34momma, Negative, mean, nasty people aren't the most enjoyable person to mingle around. No matter what you say they have their own way of thinking in negative direction. I hope we can change their mind,but you're right we can't change them. In my case I will just go on my own way rather than be affected by their negative energy. I guess it's effective to ignore their negative comments..:) We will just live life with full of happiness and optimism. Be happy:) Have a great day..

Ignore them.(^^) Sometimes they just stand with their own belief and strongly say no. Once I know it then I will leave them. They can do what they think is best for them ans I will do my way too. Have tried to make them understand but if they refused to do so then I don't have a choice. Just ignore them~(^^)
