...because I found out with most complainers; they like to *****. So, now I save my breath because no matter what I offer as a solution, they come up with a reason why my suggestion wouldn't help. Sigh:(

Possibly, or it could be that they just don't have anyone to listen to them at all... positive or negative. Also, we tend to focus on the negative and completely forget about all of the positive things we hear. For instance, I could have 100 people tell me 100 nice things, but it would be that one rude thing that one rude person said that would stand out. Sometimes I think it's just that society has a problem with "negativity" because the negative forces us to look at reality. Bad things happen ALL the time to EVERYONE. We don't want to be reminded that it can happen to us too.

The exception to that are soldiers and techies. Both do it to blow off steam. In the case of technical people, they are actually problem-solving out loud.

The rest are just jerks :D

Best Answer

Avoid negative people like you would avoid a republican fund raising rally..

They drain your ******* life away with their constant ******* woe is me & life sucks man attitude..

Be a glass half full person & kill negativity..

Best Answer

Some would argue that "glass half full" is just another way of saying "denial", "glass half empty" is reality. My mother is dying of a terminal illness. It is a fact. I'm not being negative, seeking sympathy or trying to drain anything from anyone. I'm am simply making a statement that is not positive, but does that necessarily mean it's negative? No, not always.

Best Answer

No you have god reason to feel negative if that was the case (lost both parents to cancer) but some folk are just negative about every ******* thing.Peace

I am pretty in tune to noticing depression in others. I dealt with Severe Clinical Depression for 5 years. And I like to have a dialogue with another and connect. A monologue is one-sided. I am a great listener...I am not referring to depression. Your pic is cute!

that doesn't sound like a question, does it?

Best Answer

Well, make yourself happy and find a question you like. Sigh...

Best Answer

Very negative view point, all of us have problems in life, some are here purely to vent about things we wouldn't dream of expressing to those around us, does that make us bad in some way? Or does it just make us human?

Best Answer

I am not referring to everyone. Oh, the negativity.

Best Answer

That's called, black and white thinking with no in between. Nothing is black and white. I use to think like that; not anymore. Well, I acknowlege it if I do and that changes my perspective and sends me in the right direction. One can't change something they don't acknowledge. To do that is a big step and sometimes hard to do, but very much worth the struggle.

Best Answer

I am referring to the person who, everytime you talk to them, he/she complains, complains and complains. There is a positive light in everyones life. I won't bore you with my struggles right now, but I have struggled more than most. If you and I came in contact everyday and EVERY time you saw me I complained about a lousy life and nothing ever goes right for poor me, I believe you would understand what I am trying to say. I don't think you are getting my point right now. And yes I have written some not so happy stories on this site, but I find the sun shining through the clouds as well. Do you know what I mean? I'm not referring to stories on E.P. and no I don't know why you are asking me if I think anyone is "bad." You have written your own story and it doesn't relate to what I was referring to. I happen to have a very positive outlook and like to put myself in another's shoes to understand and be empathetic. I care about others. I believe people are good when I meet them unless they show me a reason not to.
