Negative people aren’t sociopaths or bullies, so I can understand others when they say they wouldn’t stay away, but having lived a life around negativity, I disagree. Too much negativity is toxic if it’s not nipped in the bud.
For those who actively choose to stay around negativity they need to understand a person’s vulnerability and why they are negative. Trying to deal with continual negativity can leave us traumatised.
When it comes to us being negative, we can’t expect others to fall into line with how we are. There is only so much empathy others will have, before they give up. For anyone dealing with negativity, it is important they explore and understand why they feel negative.
Negativity is a form of hopelessness, a sadness and irritability, but feeling irritable isn’t great because it can create anxiety. Although negativity isn’t easy to brush aside, it’s something we can all work to change.
Giving yourself time and finding an understanding on why you feel negative is something you can help yourself with. We can all help ourselves. Negativity can manifest itself into something bigger, if not nipped in the bud.
Long-term negativity can turn into depression. Events such as losing a job, losing a loved one, our inability to cope and control our circumstances can be its trigger.
