    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.

    It's no mystery, I've always been like this

    but I'm used to it. I have no desire to be around people who are always happy. I don't feel that way and I never will. However I do have some sympathy for people who are pessimistic. I'm not always like this, but it would be nice to meet people who are angry or depressed...

    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

    I'm negative, at least that's what people tell

    me, and they make it sound like a bad thing. Sometimes I'm positive, sometimes I'm negative. I don't think negativity is a bad thing. Without it most electronics wouldn't work. They work because the electricity reverses polarity either 50 or 60 times per second, meaning that...

    "stop Being So Negative All The Time."

    If I'm not being sarcastic, I'm being negative, says everyone. I know I have an issue with negativity, but it's starting to get the best of me. I can be the most positive and uplifting person for other people, but when it comes to me, I just bring myself down. I hate who I am...

    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...

    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.
