“HOW TO DEAL WITH NEGATIVE PEOPLE” EP. 6 SHOW NOTES FROM THE PODCAST:

We’ve all had our fair share of experiences with negative people (or negathrons, as we call them). Maybe you’ve had a friend who constantly complains about everything or a co-worker who’s just plain unhappy with their life. It’s easy to feel stuck between wanting to help them change and cutting them off your life. In this episode, we’ll help you navigate around this tough situation with some tips on how to deal and stay positive around negative people.

1. Pray

  • When you’re around negative people, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with your emotions. When you pray, you take yourself out of the situation then start looking at a different perspective of “how can i love this person better?”

  • No matter how negative they are, it shouldn’t affect the way you treat them. You don’t have to be feeling close but rather, just extend kindness and show grace and love towards them.

  • Remember that responding hate with more hate doesn’t make anything better. The last thing this world needs is even more hate.

2. Stop hanging out with negative people

  • We call these people “negathrons.” These are the people who always complain or are unhappy with their lives.

  • If you have a negative friend, talk to them about it (lovingly, of course). If they still don’t change, you have the liberty to stay away and detach yourself from the relationship.

  • Sometimes, there are some people that refuse to change. It’s not your responsibility to deal and change them, it’s only your work to better yourself and extend your love to them by telling them the truth.

3. Be surrounded by positive people

  • You need people who will push you to be the best version of who you are.

  • Have a group of people you can trust and grow with.

Lastly, if you’re feeling like you are falling into negative place, always remember that you are loved. It’s easy to forget the blessings in our lives when were too focused on the negative things. Just pay forward love and kindness, and surely, things will get better :)
