Negative people

You know those people who are constantly complaining or who never have a nice word to say? “They can drain the energy out of you without you knowing it. Sure, you’re sweet to listen to their rants once in a while. But daily, even weekly, is way too much. Bite back: you might not be able to rid your life of these people entirely (maybe they’re relatives). But you can cut way back on your interactions with them. For instance, if your sister starts on another one of her tirades about how rotten her life is, tell her you understand, you sympathize, but you simply don’t have time to talk right now. Suggest a phone call next week or the week after. Maybe in the meantime, she’ll find someone else to unload her problems on.
