Avoiding Negative People and Things

Philippines
August 25, 2015 7:47pm CST
There are already a lot of negative things happening around the world and even in our immediate surroundings and getting much into deeper is not good. They actually affect us in so many ways. Much better to stay away from positive energy or at least be alone rather than having a bad companion. I want to look at life in a positive perspective and being around with negative people can only ruin that perspective. Are you around negative people? How do you deal with them?

We cannot escape negative people. I try to avoid them as much as I can, but they are everywhere.

That is true but at least we can identify them and find ways to stay away from them.

I see many negative people around me. Even my parent could spread negativity on me. Sometimes we just can't run from them. The important thing, we understand very well it's a negativity. So we only need to prepare ourselves to not get affected by them

@redvakaurvaki - I am little surprised to read your response. How come your parents spread negativity around you?

@dpk262006 My parents have old perspective. Example when I have idea to not work and focus on business online. They keep insisting me to search job. They have perspective if you don't get job, it was poor for you. Instead, the salary here is very low. Sometimes I hope they give me more support and faith on what I do

@redvakaurvaki - You see parents are always protective of their children. If they suggest you to get a job, they might be looking for your security and welfare in the long run. I agree that many a times children do not like parents' advice and there could be difference of opinion between them, but this should not mean that our parents are negative.

Honestly of course I am also with negative people and accept the fact that these people can't be really avoided because the truth is even within our family there is a negative person. I have to admit that it is really hard to avoid with negative people especially if you are talking about family member that you are always living with that person. Sometimes I ignore but most of the time I can't avoid being frustrated and depress because of them. I can divert it to other activities like sports activities or focusing on my online jobs.

I agree with you. If you are living with negative people its not that easy and also in the work place.

I agree with you. It is just so sad that this is part of our reality especially that it is hard to detach ourselves so easily with others. However, we also need to guard ourselves so that we won't drown on such negativeness.

I do not like to be around negative people. I try to be away from them. I have colleagues and friends who are positive, I love to be in their company. They are always ready to help and assist, whenever I am in trouble. Thinking positive and tuning our mind towards positive thoughts surely help us move in a better way.

Stay away from positive energy? I'd rather be surrounded by it. Don't keep that negative company. Best to avoid them.

I've always been positive to a lot of things but it's inevitable not to be with negative people,they are always around the corner so no one can escape.When you are surrounded with positive people,positive environment,it seems like everything falls in the right place.
