I really never realized how negative can drain you until I sat a woman with a new diagnosis of Crohns Disease. She didn't even have it that bad. When I got home from sitting with her for 4 hours, I was like an emotional sponge....I started talking just like her. I found that after 4 months of doing this I was in a downward spiral of depression. My job with her ended, but so did my depression. I learned a strong lesson from her. I don't include her or any one like her in my day to day routine. Don't intend on sounding mean but people like her are just not good for me.

ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN

I try to surround myself with positive people. Negativity is like a cancer that spreads at a rapid pace.

Resisting the negative forces gets positive results

Life has many doors that lead to SUCCESS that many people fail to open

Usually people are hurtful because they are jealous or feel threatened! Same with being rude... Unfortunately, there are some pretty ignorant people out there. I agree, consider the source and/or turn it into a positive. This should help!

You can't change what people say to you. You only can change how you handle it. I do 2 things. One is to concider the source and the other is to change a negative into a positive.

I work very hard on surrounding myself with positive people. One way I do it is by being a positive person myself.

Words to live by. It isn't always easy when it comes from family. However, when it is strangers-what do they know about you, anyway? Not a thing. So let it roll off your back like water over a duck's back.

Put-downs come with being human. We can't control what happens to us, but it's important to monitor how you react to it!

I think you are being hopeful. People can put others down with just a word or by action. A friend or relative may say something that shows disrespect that cuts deep.

People will always be people. They may try to put you down and make you feel bad. It would not stick as long as you do not allow it. You are the only one who can put yourself down.
