Negativity does not have many positives to it. Sometimes negativity can be associated with skepticism which can be good to ensure a mote robust group decision-making process. However, let’s distingush between negativity and negative people. Negativity can either be a temporary or longheld state. Yet, negative people are forever in that state and hardly ever put forth a solution or endorse a solution to push things forward.
There are negative people who will make you feel uncomfortable whenever they are around. Then they’re negative people who act as if their negativity is constructive while they seek to humiliate you and are seemingly jealous of your success and happiness.
“Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution” Albert Einstein
By avoiding negative people you create a space for health, happiness, and creativity. Negative people create toxic environments, and being surrounded by these people causes more harm than good. If there are negative people in your orbit, you need to walk away from them.
“I found peace of mind when I walked away from small fights not worth fighting. I stopped fighting for people who gossiped about me. I stopped fighting for those who didn’t respect me. I quit worrying about those who wouldn’t value me for being me.” – Dana Arcuri
