15 Habits of Truly Miserable People

Habits of Miserable People

There are many miserable people around us who rarely add value to our lives but leave us drained.

The definition of a miserable person is wretchedly unhappy or uncomfortable.

That is pretty spot on. When a person is miserable they never see or expect good in anything and always try to make those around them feel just as bad and negative as them.

Being miserable is a way of life for some people because they get sympathy and constant reassurance from other miserable people.

They have no goals whatsoever.

Miserable people like to drift through life waiting for someone to throw them a bone. They will end up sitting on their deathbeds thinking about what they should and could have done.
