The life that we are living today is full of stress and complications. Aren’t there times when you feel like taking a break from everything… when you feel like going on a holiday? It is actually not your life that you want a break from, it is certain people. People who create a lot of negativity in your life, who tell you that you are not good enough, who make you believe that the world is a bad place. These people are not-so-lovingly called pessimists. Negative people or pessimists cannot see the good in any person or situation.
Here are a few negative people you might want to stay away from. You definitely might have one from each category in your life already. Read on and figure out who’s who.
1. The drama queen
There are people who create unnecessary drama in your life and their own. These people are experts in making a mountain out of a molehill. They love to fight over petty issues and create a scene. They have a problem with every little thing and try to find excuses to over-react. It is better to ignore such people, as attention will only add fuel to the fire already set by them.
2. The one that is never impressed
These people will never appreciate anything you do, no matter how applause-worthy it is. The best way to deal with such people is to stay away from them. They can do nothing but demotivate you, and pull your morale down. But do not hate them because you will only be increasing your own baggage. Let karma do its bit.
3. The dream crusher
Certain people claim to be the critic of your life. It is good to have a few close people who are always honest with you as this helps you grow. But there are certain people who criticize you, not because they wish you well, but because that’s all they know to do. They always see the negative in any situation and whenever you share your dream with them, they will just say that it is shit. They will always discourage you and tell you to think of something else to do. A few such people also go one step ahead and tell you what you should do. They impose their perceptions of what your life should be like and expect you to live it like that. They will always tell you to be someone you are not.
4. The unforgiving friend
We all make mistakes, but what we do to make it right is what makes us a better person. When we hurt someone, we should make it a point to make up for it. But there are some people who are not ready to forgive no matter what we do to mend ways. These people create a lot of negativity in our lives as they are a part of it but are not on our side completely. Some of these friends claim to have moved on, but in actuality, their minds are still stuck on the issues from the past. Being with such people will do good to neither you nor them.
5. Your inner critic
The one person that you live very closely with is your inner self. When you criticize yourself, it is the worst kind of negativity that can affect your life. You can have a happy life only when you feel like that from within. Always motivate yourself, no matter what you are going through in life. That is the only way you can survive even the biggest of problems.
