    My Marriage To The ' Love Of My Life'

    I married a sociopathic narcissist, who for 5 yrs was a dream! Anything i wanted! He was wonderful! Got up one am, went to work, returned a mean, sadistic sob who to this day gets his joy in life tearing me apart. Yea, im negative.

    Okay, I'll Start...

    I consider myself to be quite the negative person.  I learned it at a young age.  The way I was raised, it was always to accentuate the negative and ignore the positive. I'm fully aware of it. I try not to force the way I am upon others. People are free to be...

    I thrive in anger and bitterness.

    if I am angry I get things done and make things happened. Without anger energy i am a lame conformist that everyone overlooked and abuse. If I am not angry I am trying so hard to help and please everyone and never do anything for mysef

    Negativity

    She always says I am so negative. She is right. I am. Its easier this way. Im used to failing and when I do, Im not surprised. If you set yourself too high, when you fall, you'll kill yourself. I keep my goals low. If I miss my goal, I hurt my foot instead of fall...

    People Say So, But I Don't Believe It

    Just because you lived a tough life with a disability doesn't make you a negative person. The same people who tell me I'm too negative are the ones who avoid me, tell me hurtful things, KNOWING I'm sensitive, & never point out anything positive. They point out attributes...

    Something good happens... and I'll immediately start thinking of all the bad things that could happen. I just can't accept that something good has happened to me. I have to worry about it. I'm so negative about everything... I just can't see anything good ever happening to me. I...

    Infected With Negativity

    I think my negativity started when i was a kid. My parents split and i began to feel like something was missing. As a result i grew up thinking no one cared about me, my mothers love wasnt enough. Then i met my boyfriend and he made me feel whole again. I soon moved in with him...

    I Have Been Told I Am Very Negative

    I definitely am negative I spose, people say it to me and I'm rather sarcastic most of the time and I can rarely be bothered to do anything I commit to! Everything seems a chore and I don't enjoy moments.

    Negative People Of The World Unite.

    Us negative people get a bad rap. Without negativity, nothing would work. Electronics wouldn't work. Everything works because the electricity goes from positive to negative 50 or 60 times per second. I'm sick of hearing about positive thinking. I've tried it. It just doesn...

    I'm Trying Not to Be

    I'm a horribly negative person, but I'm trying not to be. Just when I think I'm getting better, something changes and I'm back to being negative.   No matter what it is, I always see the down side. I don't know how to stop.

    The Glass Is Always Half Empty...and Theres a Hole In the Bottom.

    I never see the positive side to anything... ever!   That way, I'm not disappointed when something bad happens, and if something good does happen {Yeah, right} then I'm pleasantly surprised.
