How do you handle negative people in your life when they are your loved ones? #happiness

12345

I post on Quora (you can find my answers here). The question in the title attracted my attention because this is something I am trying to figure out (my take on it is here). But it’s Rosalyn’s answer (right) that blew my mind away.

She made 3 points about dealing with negative people (NP) which instantly resonated:

  1. Stop focusing on the NP.
  2. It takes self love and acceptance to not react.
  3. Life is too short to struggle with people.

And just like that a seismic mind shift took place and I felt a bit lighter (aka liberated). Can I deal calmly with my brother when I see him next? I don’t know. But I am definitely going to work on this whole self love thing.

Life is too short to struggle with people.

  2. I tend to distance myself from negative people. It helps me “block out the noise”.
