  • dont take it in.. imagine the negativity as a ball of energy and send it away from you. I usually call on angels or my spirit guides to take it away, if its that drastic or I just tell myself, i don't need this negative energy, i will not take it on, its not me so i send it away where it can be disolved. then try and get back into a positive mood, meditation, listening to a nice song, go smell some flowers etc etc. things that make you feel happy.. even if its just a quick call to someone you love/ or a best friend to have a whinge.. least you have got it off your chest .

  • that's pretty vague-
    granted we should all try to be as positive as possible, but I find that most that complain that there is nothing but negativity around them are actually pretty negative themselves.
    if you can't see anything but half empty glasses around you, then what does that make you?

    If you think that everyone around you is negative, perhaps you should consider that your own behavior and consider that maybe not everyone finds you to be a ray of positive sunshine that you feel that others should consider yourself to be.

  • I deal with this just about everyday at my job. It starts at the top, with the boss and works its way down the pipes. Some days are worse then others. If I cant rise above it, I usually just try not to add to it. Seems like negative behavior feeds on itself. But I totally understand how frustrating it can be sometimes.
