Negative people need drama like they need oxygen. Stay positive, it will take their breath away.
I absolutely love this quote; I truly believe that misery loves company and being an empath I used to fall into that trap all the time. I used to be the one who always tried to help people and always tried to be that shoulder to cry on, but then i would internalize the other persons feelings and it would put my mood in the toilet. Then even after that some people still would choose to be negative and see the glass half full. You can not fix someone’s negativity. You can not change someone’s mind who just is set on wanting to be negative all the time. And this was something I had to learn. I always wanted to be that savior, that person that made everyone happy and all that did was get me hurt because i was not protecting myself so it was affecting my mental health. You have to always protect your sanity and mental health before you do anything else.
This world today is filled with negativity. Its in the media, its on the radio, its on tv; there is just so much negativity going around that it is hard to protect yourself at times. But you have to find ways. Do not let the negativity and the negative people in the world, make you become a negative person. Do not let all the hate in the world turn your heart cold. Sometimes i just shut the world out, i turn the news off for a couple of days, i turn the radio off and listen to Spotify, I just do things that make me feel positive to not allow the negativity in and that’s what you have to do. The world has turned ugly and I don’t even recognize it anymore and I refuse to give into that, I refuse to become one of these people filled with hatred and negative emotions, one of these people who are just miserable all the time. And nobody should allow others to bring you down to that level.
Go out on a walk, get a massage, take a bubble bath, meditate, listen to music, dance in the Kitchen, cook a meal, take a nap. Do whatever you need to do to keep yourself positive and upbeat during these hard times in the world. And remember misery loves company, so make your own solo path.
