I don’t think there is anything worse in life than having negative people around you.
Most of us can get through difficult situations with the support and help of our friends and family. But if those people happen to be negative / spiteful / resentful / hurtful things can easily get out of control. It is very easy for other peoples’ negativity to bring you down and effect your everyday life. Don’t let it happen!
Personally, I have had to exclude numerous negative people from my life and it was the best thing I ever did (although I couldn’t see it at the time!). I highly recommend putting yourself first (if possible) and ridding yourself of anyone that puts you down!
