I Hate Being Around Negative People

Negativity is like a contagious disease, you infect the people surrounding you! 723 People

    An entire sea of water can't sink a ship

    Not only is it somewhat depressing but so unproductive for the people around them. How can you ever hope to accomplish good things in this life with such a poor outlook. Positive vibes produce positive vibes in others' and that's what it takes to do anything good in this world...
