Discussing :: 7 Simple Tips To Deal With Negative People

“The people who are the hardest to love are the ones who need it the most.” ~Peaceful Warrior Have you ever dealt with negative people before? If you have, you will know that the experience can be quite a downer.I used to have an ex-colleague who was very negative. In our conversations, she would complain endlessly about her co-workers, her work and her life. She was also very cynical about people in general, often doubting their intentions. Talking to her wasn’t a pleasant experience at all.The first time we had a meeting, I felt very drained. Even though we talked for only 20-30 minutes, I didn’t have the mood or energy to do... read full article

7 Simple Tips To Deal With Negative People

I knew some one so negative I dropped him from my life. Its so easy to become down and negative with people like that around you and I understand the draining feeling after spending 20 mins with them. This is some good advice that I will take on board for next time!

I love Tip #7: Drop Them From Your Life. Its what I also do to bad customers. They are always complaining and always trying to put you down. With no negative people my whole life is a lot happier and less stressful.

I had a business mentor years ago. He advised me to sack the worst 20% of my clients. After taking a big breath I did so and never looked back. After splitting with my ex, I was able to sack almost 40% of my "friends and family" (hers). What a wonderful feeling.

Negative people are a BIG downer and I find it hard dealing with them when they're family and it's not as easy to drop them! I guess I can still manage how much time I spend around them. I agree with what you said re objectifying the comments made.

I love this article. This is perfect for my current situation dealing with some people who are causing me to change my moods because of the negative comments I've been hearing from them. Their frankness is hard to deal with, especially that I always want to avoid being confronted. And also, this article made me realize that there were also times when it is I, who plays the role od being negative.

Cynical people are hard to manage and I guess, all of you will agree with me. Whenever I bumped to a negative person, I just ignored him/her and just plain listen to whatever he/she is saying to save the word "respect". I don't want them to affect me in whatever they think or do because I know more myself and I know the things that will make happy. I just don't buy their twisted beliefs and reasoning because I want to live with an easy and vibrant outlook in life.

Great article negative people can be so draining i find myself getting pulled into negative conversations not until later i think that wasn't good or i should have just stayed out of it.Limit time with that person for sure.Good reminder to myself not to get in a negative state it is so easy to do without even realizing it.

#8

It is important to just be yourself and not let them drag you down with them. It is usually easier to tolerate in short bursts and you just have to be kind but not get too involved.

#9

I've notice the one simple strategy for people that always whinge and whine and put others down is to ask their opinion in the matter, and ask them what they would do differently, or how they can make it better.

#10

Best way to deal with negative people is don't engage them in conversation. if you need to talk just answer yes/no or give them those options, don't expand on anything, then walk away.
