One of my favorite quotes on negative people is, “Don’t walk away from grumpy people, RUN!
Nuke the Negative People
Write the names of negative people who bring you down. Plan to protect yourself from their negativity. Take back your power. Only you can make yourself feel insecure. Tell yourself that no one makes you feel inferior without your consent. It’s the negativity that is so dangerous. It is extremely contagious.
Replace people who pull you down with people who encourage and appreciate you. The choice, in many cases, is up to you. Who encourages you during tough and positive times?
