I used to deal with negative people on a daily basis and it was physically and mentally exhausting.
My experience was very similar to the writer of this article, but instead of one person, I found myself surrounded by negativity from multiple people. My solution? I removed myself from the situation as quickly as I could.
I wish I had this article back then because it could have been very useful in helping me cope with the daily mess that I was subjected to, but hey, it’s done. I’ve learned A LOT and moved on.
I don’t even want to write about my experience, that’s how much I want to put it behind me.
That’s not really what Bloggers do, is it? Oh well! My energy is better spent on other things. 🙂
Tiny Buddha – How To Deal With Negative People
Quote of the Week – Zen Poem
“I want my life to be one of love, not rage
Kindness, not contempt
Joy, not suffering
I want to be alive and present in this moment,
Not lost in thought and delusion.”
I heard about this article back in April of 2014 about a fellow named Slomo. Slomo used to be a successful neurologist and one day, he turned his back on it all… His business, his life, the money. Now he simply glides on rollerblades down the Pacific Beach boardwalk every single day… and is the happiest he’s ever been.
This is…. I don’t know what this is but it’s way too ridiculous to ignore.
I have way too many jokes bouncing around my head right now, but I’m too busy laughing.
