Don’t Hate the Negative Nancy in your Life!

It’s a nice rainy day here in the Seattle area. We have the September rainstorms rolling through again so we are back to our normal doom and gloom weather. Yet another reason for you NOT to move to the Puget Sound area. It is a disaster here. Stay away.

Speaking of disasters, I’m enjoying the various posts across social media about how to get rid of the negative people in your life. How negative people are “bad” for you and your dreams. It’s not negative people you should be getting rid of, it is toxic people. Poor negative people are getting blamed for a host of problems and it isn’t their fault.

Let’s chat a bit about negative people. We all have that friend or family member who is a negative person. If you are lucky, you have more than one in your life! Negative people like to remind you that the world is falling apart and that we are all going to die soon. If we didn’t have all those negative people with their negative thoughts, we would never be moved to improve ourselves or our situations. Be happy that we have negative people. They help us to make us feel better about ourselves. You can say “At least I’m not that Negative Nancy. Her life sucks.”

Use those negative people to make your life better. Enjoy their misery. Let it motivate you to do better, improve your life and society.

Just remember to thank them for their negatively. They desire at least that from you!

I am thankful for those negative people in my life. They have shown me exactly who I don’t want to be.”
