    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.

    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...
