How to Deal With Negative People Who Just Aren't Going Away
Being around negative people can drain your energy and cause you to feel trapped and overwhelmed. Learning to recognize the negative people in your life, and finding ways to avoid them will result in a more sustainable and satisfying life for you. If you can't avoid the person completely, there are other ways to handle the person's negativity and limit the effect it has on your life. To avoid a negative person in public, try pretending to be engaged with your phone and avoiding eye contact to give the impression that you're preoccupied. If you have to be around them in a work or social environment, try to hang out in groups so you don't get caught alone with them.
It's been said that one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch and often, that applies to the business environment. It's usually easy to identify that Negative Nancy or Debbie Downer who wreak havoc on morale. Their bad attitudes, catastrophic thinking, and fatalistic outlooks can infiltrate the ranks and spread like an epidemic. Negative people can also cause problems for us on an individual level. Perhaps it's that vendor who causes you to grit your teeth. Or maybe it's a colleague whom you avoid at all costs.
Negative people love bringing others down. So what should you do when faced with a negative friend, co-worker, family member or colleague? After all, everyone has a bad day now and again. Nor should you try to bright-side everything. Trying to convince someone to stop being negative may only challenge to them to amp up their hostility.

Put yourself in others shoes… sure, do all that as a standard practice of being a decent human being… but keep your life free from the drama and negativity that is not WHO YOU ARE. If your attempts to lift someone out of negativity are unsuccessful, you have to move on. Be Yourself. Do your own thing and work hard.
