Reasons You Should Quarantine Yourself from Negative People

gossip drama bitching complain

Negative people have a knack for bringing others down. They seem to suck the air out of every room they walk into and make everyone around them feel yucky. In many cases, these people don’t have to say a word. The vibes and bad energy alone are enough to darken the brightest of moods because you can sense it. You can feel it in your gut.

This is why it’s so important that you listen to your gut and avoid people who have a dark disposition and who seem to attract misfortune. It’s okay to help someone when they’re in trouble and provide a listening ear to someone who’s sad and needs to talk. Nothing wrong with that.

But if a person seems to live in a dark place and never get out of the funk they’re in, or, if the individual has bad stuff happen to them nonstop, it’s best to either limit time spent with them or avoid them altogether.

‘You see? Moods and emotional states are as contagious as the flu. And another person’s bad moods and misfortunes have a way of rubbing off on the people around them.

It’s much better to keep company with people who are happy, successful, and satisfied with their lives. Now, before I go on, I realize that bad things do happen to good people and that just because someone is unfortunate doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re negative.

Some have been brought down by circumstances beyond their control. They are the ones we offer a helping hand to.

However, others bring misfortune on themselves by their negative attitudes, actions, and effect on others. We should avoid these people like the plague because there’s no changing them. In fact, they will only end up changing you and not for the better.

Again, understand that we’re all susceptible to the moods, emotional states, and ways of thinking of the people we spend time with. And those who are unhappy and unstable have a contagion effect on us because of the extreme intensity of their emotions.

These are people with a victim mentality and most bullies do present themselves as victims. They will never admit that they bring a lot of bad karma on themselves by the way they treat others. And if you’re not careful, they’ll only bring you down too, because they will overwhelm you with their forceful nature.

How you keep a positive attitude is to keep company with positive and happy people. These people don’t have to mistreat or bully anyone to feel good about themselves. They’re already happy and enjoying their lives.

And they’re such a pleasure to be around. When you befriend and spend time with people who are happy and positive, you get to share in their happiness and prosperity. You become a part of the happiness they embody and the happiness they attract to themselves.

So, why not keep them around and let their joy infect you? You’ll be so glad you did!

  1. I agree with you about mood and emotions being extremely contagious, and yes, we know how draining a constantly negative person can be.

    Constant complaining and negativity can also be symptoms of a depressive disorder, and sometimes should be evaluated, particularly if the complaining and negativity signals a change in behaviour. 🌼🤗

  2. You are right people who believe and live by a victim mentality are best avoided. It us the attitude which matters and not circumstances.
    Stay blessed always.
    🙏🌹🙏

  4. Until you start being around the right people it’s hard to see that someone’s energy is bringing you down and the relationship isn’t healthy. Then when you start to have positive people around you it feels like such a breath of fresh air!

    • You’re so right! 💯🎯 You must know what positive people feel like to be around before you can know the difference. Thank you so much for your thoughts! 🙂

  5. To be honest your work is beyond appreciation😉😉
    You are doing great work 💐💐
    I love reading your work 😁😁
    I would love to ask you one think

    What should one do when himself is in negative state of mind..
    As you mentioned there are people who dwell in deep negativity..
    How to bring oneself out from that deep pit??

    • That’s a great question and I can tell you how I did it. I did it by reading personal development. The negativity I struggled with was a result of being bullied. So, I began researching bullying, the very thing that made me negative and found the answers I’d been looking for. Therefore, I found my purpose. The best thing I believe is to find your purpose and passion and run with it.

      Blessings to you always.
