10 Lessons I Learned from Negative People

Negative people are around us. Sometimes, they can even be your family, partner, or your closest friends. They suck the energy out of you and they just bring you down.

It's sad when you see a negative person. They are unhappy, miserable, and are never content in life. They blame everyone around them, but never take ownership for the things that they have done.

It's necessary that you cut ties with people like this. Sometimes though, it may seem impossible so you need to learn to cope. Here are some lessons that I learned from having negative people around me.

1. If you are a negative person, don't expect good things to happen. If you constantly complain, whine, curse, yell, and do things that are considered negative, do not expect positive things to happen in your life.

2. If you committed a sin, you will pay for it. This is called justice. Justice is when you receive something good or bad depending on what you have done. You sin, you pay for it. You did a good thing, something good comes your way.

Eye for an eye. Tooth for a tooth. Life for life.

Grace will never come for you. Grace is when you receive something that you don't deserve but was given anyway because God granted it to you.

3. If you go about speaking ill of others when their back is turned to you and pretending to be good when they are facing you, it shows how MISERABLE of a person you are. Happy people do not go around trying to destroy others.

4. Ang magnanakaw, galit sa kapwa magnanakaw. A thief will hate another thief because it takes one to know one.

5. Secrets always have a way of coming out. ALWAYS.It's why scandals became a thing.

It's also why I made my life an open book. No one can use anything against you if you have nothing to hide.

6. Misery loves company. Miserable people want to make others feel miserable too. Let these people go, even if they are your closest friend or family. You owe it to yourself to find your happy.

7. You don't demand respect. You earn it. If you lose it, earn it again. Don't impose. Just because you are an adult does not mean you deserve respect.

8. What the adults do, stupid children follow. Smart children learn from the mistakes of the adult.

9. When you turn your back on people who don't deserve it, God will turn his back on you.

10. No amount of prayer will be enough if you live a life of sin and ungratefulness. You will not be blessed.

At the end of the day, face the mirror and ask yourself: "Am I happy? Did I do the best that I could today? Did I make someone's life better by existing? Did I add to the good of the world because I woke up today?"

If you can't answer yes to those questions, ask yourself why?

Life is already hard. If you aren't contributing to the good, then you're one of the problems.

  3. These are great points. We can't all be positive all the time, but we need to be as much as possible. And you are right that when we let the negative take hold, it sucks the life out of you and brings you down.

  4. #1 touches home for me! I know many people who act like this frequently, and do nothing but complain about how toxic and crappy things happen in their lives. You reap what you sow and negativity breads negativity.

  7. It's so true - a lot of negative people experience self fulfilling prophecies. If they expect bad, they'll create bad! It is so important to be able to be insightful into things that we might need to improve so we can grow.

  8. I agree with number one - If you are a negative person, don't expect good things to happen.

    In other words, what you reap is what you sow.

  11. Great set of questions to ask oneself at the end of this blog! It is so important to try and be positive and add niceness around. More so in times when most people these days are anxious and finding it hard to focus on the positives.

  20. This is spot on. I love the quote about everyone you meet teaching you something. It can change perspective to see someone else being negative and how unbecoming it is. We learn how not to be for sure!

  21. Negative people are everywhere if you don't see your self happy because of being negative reason you need to help yourself.

  22. I love the good insights of this post, negative people definitely gives you a bad thing and if someone keeps on saying negative things about others stop them and tell them to focus to their self not on other people lives.

  23. Agree, there are lots of negative people around us, they are everywhere, sometimes you won't be able to notice them. But then, we always need to remind ourselves, to be who you are and do what you want, do anything that makes you happy. Don't mind what other people will say, because in the end, if you fail, you will be the only one to help yourself. If you succeed, then that's your blessing.

  24. A wonderful post. Thank you for listing down these points. More than looking at others we need to be vigilant that negative attitude does not bog us down in life.

  25. Thank you for this. I have really started to embrace the 'misery loves company' concept as of late. There are many people in my life that bring negative energy with them anywhere they go. While I can't always cut these people out of my life completely due to various commitments, I can limit the time that I am spending with them and choose whether or not to accept their negativity in my own life.

  34. Oh my gosh! I love when you talk about talking bad about people behind the backs of others! I am so there with you! If someone only talks trash about other people, then they must be super freaken miserable themselves! If you're a happy person, there is no reason to attack others! People who are confident in themselves don't turn into bullies. I love this post!
