What is the deal with sad people? I am thoroughly convinced some people choose to be miserable. Well maybe they don’t wake up and think “I hope today is a terrible day” but they definitely let little things bother them more than the average ninja.
I had to take a three hour, seven hundred question, psychological exam the other day and it made me realize something. I’m a pretty freakin’ content individual. Now I know that I have a lot to be thankful for: steady job, good income, loving family, and blue eyes, but I don’t know why some people prefer negativity.
I got friends that complain about their job, school, love life, finances, etc. I realize some people’s lives are more difficult, but that doesn’t mean they have to choose misery. After all, as bad as you may think your life is, there’s probably someone out there thats got it worse.
I’ll just be honest. I don’t really like being around negative people at all. Now I’m assuming most of us probably prefer to avoid Negative Nancy, but how do you deal with them if you are around them frequently? I have tried talking with them, but they seem to just bring me down. They don’t want advice ’cause they say things like “You don’t understand.” Do you cut them out of your life? Do you remain patient and try and preach happiness? Do you slap them across the face and say “Quit your whining sucker!” If I see Nancy again, I’m gonna kick her in the elbow.
