Have you ever thought what makes you feel depressed despite you being surrounded by people, even though you talk and mingle with them?
There might be a ceiling of negativity over you. Negativity thrives when you are surrounded by people who instigates negative emotions in you like envy, anger, jealousy and hatred. We tend to become emotional in front of people and our emotions are the biggest weapon for them to wield against us, when necessary.
You will hardly notice anyone who is authentically happy. By genuine happiness, I mean the happiness that comes from being surrounded by the positive people. Either you have to be amongst those pessimistic ones or you need to stay with those handful people who are your positive charm.
Now, what would you like to do when you are feeling low?
You need to know whether the people with whom you are hanging out, going on trips, eating out, sleeping over, studying with – are the positive ones or not. Of course, for this removal of negativity and depression, one must understand the importance of getting rid of a negative company.
You know, when you are gradually surrounded by positive people, you will slowly notice a change of aura from pessimism to optimism. You will start loving yourself; there will be no one before whom you will feel depressed. You will be able to feel a positive charm around you. You will generally wish to be accompanied by those people more and more.
Negativity leads us to isolation, which we don’t realize initially.
However, you have to learn to protect your own self from falling prey to negativity.
Here are a few signs which will help you realise that you may be surrounded by negative people and it is time you think about a change.
1. Forever pessimists
One fine day she asked her friend, “Will I ever get him back?” An instant reply came from the other end,
“Are you even mad?”
“Have you lost it?”
“He will never return. He is surely mingling with someone else.”
Coincidentally, the boy might have just been deeply hurt and badly wanted to reconcile with her. This is how your pessimistic friend will worsen your disappointment.
During a hard time we always need positive energies from our friends. If this one scene we have witnessed in our lives then we must have become surrounded by negative energy.
Now you know that you may also have been surrounded by someone like this who has intentionally filled your life with negativity, but you are unaware of that.
2. “I am always a loser”
You might have experienced some of your close mates saying this.
The negative ones always intentionally consider them the victims or the losers. They always deliberately take up the action of being the one hurt.
Even if they are not linked to the case, they consider themselves the victim.
It is better to stay away from these people who not only play victim but also make you feel guilty of being a possible reason for them being upset. If you want your determination to keep you moving on in life, stay away from these people.
3. “No dude, I am just so stuck today”:
Heard this line maybe yesterday, right? The negative people actually are very selfish – THEY NEVER REALLY HAVE TIME FOR YOU. You heard me right; it is only when they are free you will be the perfect person for them to hang out with. But when you need them, they are like, “I am stuck at my office”. If they had been positive buddies, the friendship would have been a both ways pertaining one where you would have always got your mate by your side.
4. A pretty exploitative friendship
They will always be at your service when you are providing them with something in return.
