Are you a “Negative Nancy”? Are you the one that always finds the negative in a situation?
You know the old saying, “Misery loves company?” Well, Misery, you must definitely love company.
Negativity spreads like wildfire and it’s more difficult to get people to think positively these days than negatively.
Think about the reasons why you feel the need to openly voice your discontent. Have you done anything to remedy this feeling? If so, then you are complaining just to complain and are bringing others down with you in the process.
Though people may be sympathetic and empathetic, there is a point where they don’t want to hear your daily gripe. They have their own issues to deal with.
So, some advice:
1) Before openly griping, think of what purpose it serves.
2) If this is something you complain about on a consistent basis, then do something about it. Complaining without action is a waste.
3) Try to think of something positive and focus on that. Negativity is terrible for your health.
Think about it, take a breathe, and find your positive place.
