Have you ever been around a negative person? They can always find something to complain about, seem to be angry at everyone and always brings the mood down. I know I have! Negative people tend to leave their negative vibes even when they left the room. Their pessimistic views start to consume you and suddenly you find yourself worrying, doubting or fearing the unknown. Not only do they see the glass as half empty, but they want you to see it too!
Believers, energy transfers. Energy never dies. Negative people carry around a bag of negative energy waiting to unload it on an unsuspecting victim. The sad truth is that some negative people may not even know that they are negative. They have become so used to gossiping, lying or complaining that it has become a part of their character. Whether it is their culture, environment or how they were raised, subconsciously they have adapted to this pessimistic outlook. They continue to speak these negative words over their life and unto others and wonder why they are stuck in the same cycle of negativity.
And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.” -Mark 7:20-23
Do not be deceived: Bad company ruins good morals [1 Corinthians 15:33]. If you continue to surround yourself with negative people, don’t expect positive results. You are who you hang out with and it’s important to surround yourself with people who carry good energy. If someone does not bring good into your life, they do not need to be in your life. Relationships are by choice and you have the power to chose. There is no need to feel guilty about cutting someone off, remember that it is for your greater good. After all, they may just need to experience life without you to realize the life they are living.
