    Infected With Negativity

    Don't Mind At All

    It's that negativity that helps me learn and comprehend stuff in the world, it gives me lots of knowledge that makes me act like whole different person than who I normaly am. I've been told it's a gift and I want to embrace it. But sometimes this "gift" can hit back and cause...

    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...

    Im Negative, So What!

    They all say it, teachers, peers, parents,friends..."You so negative!". Well... who cares? I for one feel better off being negative because I don't see it as negative, I see it as practical. If I am always doubting myself I can never be disappointed when I fail, and I...

    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.

    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

    over time...I guess my negativity is there

    but now I seem to think positively in a sense, like whatever happens happens, and I'll just accept it.

    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.

    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.
