In life, its normal to have some certain friends or even folks that are toxic. That who they are, and there is little or nothing you can do about them being toxic but there are definitely stuffs you can do to prevent those bad energies emitting from them to affect you or weigh you down. There was a time I had to ask some certain people around me to know the reason why people could be negative i.e. yielding negative energy. I gathered that this people suffers from lack of confidence, gloom and doom, distrust, and anxiety. There is a neurological explanation as to why some people end up being so negative. It has to do with the part of the brain called the amygdala, which functions as an alarm and is constantly on the look out for danger, fear and bad news. Scientists made us known that this is actually the brain’s default position but positive people had develop an ability to evaluate and face up to problems which can counteract this mechanism but not negative people because they want to be natural pessimist. Negative people rarely envisage a happy outcome or great result. They always imagine that everything will go wrong.
These people could be readily around you and it might be hard for you to avoid or totally remove them from your lives. Here are some practical steps to deal with them and remain positive in life.
1.Recognize them: The first thing is to recognize this people emitting this negative energy that usually discourage you from achieving what ever you want in life. They will always stand to tell you why things cant be done and whereas they have never done it themselves. They are so toxic. They will tell you one million reasons why it will fail, not to risk stuffs and most times in the disguise of caring about you not to fall into a pool of disappointment in life. There is knowledge in recognizing this people because some certain relationships will only further destroy you.
2. Don’t take it hard or personal: Like I said earlier, most of this people are dealing with some hard times in their lives. This is the reason they decide to target people around them. Do not be mad at them or be offended by their comments. Some times ago, when a roomie in school made a negative comment about me, I remembered flaring up and saying bad words back at him only for me to end up regretting the hurtful words I said to him. So don’t take the shit personal to prevent causing regretful blooper with your utterances.
3. Don’t respect the crap: The essence of their negative energy is for it to have effects on you. Its now your duty to rise above the hate. You rocked this world with your successes and you should own that success. Be proud of yourself and stand tall! Don’t listen to any of the remarks as it will only weigh you down which means their bad energy will fulfil its purpose on you.
4. Smile, Be nice and live life: I know you’ve heard before now that you ain’t born to please everyone in this world. Yes! You’re not born to please anyone, everyone. Don’t try to please everyone. If all else fails, reduce contact with them or avoid them altogether. If it’s a good friend, let him/her know of the severity of the issue and work it out where possible. It’s not healthy to spend too much time with people who drains you. Live your life and continue to be who you want to be while you ignore them. Make time to pursue a new hobby, learn new skills, take a walk, or meditate. Bad energy scares away the money. Positive vibes only.
