GLASS HALF EMPTY PEOPLE

run like mad when you see them! i don't even get out of my apartment building and they try to attack! It starts with how bad the weather is and from there it graduates to how bad the service is in our building. the only way to handle these people that we all know is to kill them with positiveness. positive thoughts send these people running its much how superman will always try and run from cryptonite as he knows it destyoys him. people who are trying to eat healthy for the day do not need negative energy. It will forever drag us down! we need to surround ourselves with the folks who always see the glass as half full.They are out their seek them out.

I couldn’t agree with Stacey more! It’s something I’ve, unfortunately, had to learn the hard way and a bit later in life, but I’ve finally learned it! Most of my life I have been the “glass is half full” person… but sometimes life brings “half empties” into your world that you can’t walk or run away from so quickly because they hold a more permanent place in your life i.e.: a parent, sibling, relative, boss, co-worker, etc. and you must interact with them on a somewhat regular basis.

I found that “half empties” can interfere with ones ability to love life and move forward by sucking the life out of you and holding you back, if you let them… That’s the key… IF you “let them”… This is where Stacey’s advice to “kill them with positiveness” works SO PERFECTLY! Doing just that builds up a strong immunity against negativity, and no matter what they say to try and get you to join their “misery loves company club”, if you retaliate with upbeat and positive thinking they seem to do one of two things: 1. Feel impacted by your positivism because it makes them feel good, hopeful, and prompted them to lean more towards the glass being half full OR 2. The “energy vampire” will leave you alone and go look for someone else to feed off of.

Life is too short as it is. I feel that if a person who is a product of my environment has a negative impact on me, since I cannot easily eliminate them, well then I will at least limit my contact with them… They may learn to appreciate me more that way too. When I was a kid I accepted negative people into my life much more simply because I was too scared and insecure of becoming their target, it felt safer knowing they were on my side. The ability to wreck a person’s day, week, or life is a source of power, a power that as an adult I am no longer willing to give to anyone as easily as I did as a child, so I have now rid myself of negative influences in my life that constantly chipped away at my self-esteem. I had to “cleanse” my social circle by choosing only those that will contribute to my well-being and enrich my life. We only have one life and need our energy to try with all that we are to make it as happy as possible! We deserve it!

Love, Hugs, & Smack-a-roonies! …Diana
